Andrew Clayton, a Local tree specialist, will provide Christmas tree recycling for the Community of Crosspool between 10am & 11.30am on Sunday 10th January 2021.
The Crosspool forum would like to take this opportunity to give a big thank you to ”Direct Travel”, for allowing us to use the space in front of their premises.
Please observe social distancing when dropping off your tree and suggested donation.
There’s a chance for Crosspool residents to recycle their Christmas tree on Sunday 7 January, 10-11.30am, outside Direct Travel.
Volunteers will be collecting contributions to support the work of Crosspool Forum in our community. If you would like to give then the suggested donation is £2.
If you can spare an hour or two in the morning to assist with the recycling and with the clear up afterwards then your help would be appreciated – please come along from 10am.

2017 Christmas tree recycling in Crosspool
Shredding Christmas trees on Sunday
Thanks to everyone who brought their tree down for recycling on Sunday and made a small donation.
Shredding and recycling was carried out by our local tree specialist and firewood supplier Andy Fisher of Complete Tree Solutions.
The donated money went towards the recycling of the trees and the purchase of the new LED lights which could be seen on the trees in the precinct over Christmas.
A big thank you goes to all our local businesses for their continued support displaying the Christmas trees each year and also to the team of volunteers who helped put them up and take them down.

Manchester Road: recycling should be collected tomorrow
Crosspool households on Manchester Road and Ringstead Avenue are still waiting for their blue bins and boxes to be emptied today.
Veolia have advised that they should all be emptied tomorrow (Tuesday).
Two weeks ago there were also delays to Veolia’s recycling service, with 12 roads in our area not having their recycling collected on the scheduled day.
Blue bins and boxes weren’t emptied on some Crosspool roads on Monday
If your blue bin and box didn’t get emptied yesterday then it should be dealt with today, according to Veolia.
Problems with collection lorries on Monday meant that around 12 roads in our area didn’t have their recycling collected. If you keep your bin and box left out today they should get emptied.
Sheffield residents recently moved to fortnightly collections, alternating between black wheelie bins one week and blue recycling bins/boxes the other.
Yorkshire Post and Sheffield Star report that from next year, the council will allow Crosspool householders to select how they use their blue bin and blue box for recycling.
With the current system, residents must use the bin for bottles and the box for paper. But from April, you will be able to choose which you use for which type of item.
The news will come as a relief to elderly residents, some of whom found the boxes cumbersome to move when full of paper and also susceptible to windy and wet weather due to the detachable lid.
Blue box: from April can be used to recycle bottles, if you choose
