Recognising the importance to dispose of our real Christmas trees sustainably rather than end up in landfill, which is both costly to the taxpayer and the environment,
On Sunday morning 8th January, the Crosspool Forum had arranged a brief window for the community to drag their discarded Christmas trees to the forecourt in front of local travel agents “Direct Travel.”
The huge number of Christmas trees brought for recycling were soon reduced to wood chippings for mulch, outdoor firewood, animal bedding and pathways locally.
It was gratifying to hear the residents of Crosspool appreciate the hard work of the volunteers and the convenience of being able to dispose of their Christmas trees environmentally friendly.

It can be extremely therapeutic to have a big clear-out at home and discover items long since forgotten, and it’s even better when you can sell something on so that someone else can enjoy it. There’s nothing better than venturing out on a sunny Saturday morning with family and friends to hunt for fantastic bargains. Forget eBay and the like … the humble car boot sale offers the perfect platform for meeting like-minded people for exchanging items. Okay, so we’re not blessed with the best of weather here in the UK. If it does rain, then the area is tarmacked and there’s always good food and drink to enjoy in the Crosspool Tavern. Come rain or shine, there will always be traders and buyers willing to brave the elements in search of hidden gems that may be lurking on one of the many stalls. Just remember that even if you no longer need something, another person might – and by the end of the morning, you could have earned a tidy sum of cash for your unwanted items and helped the environment by recycling.
