Why note donate your used real Christmas tree to help safeguard Wirral’s coastal sand dunes?
The Christmas tree recycling project at North Wirral Coastal Park helps reverse natural erosion of sand dunes.
The dunes are a valuable habitat that support a range of vulnerable species including common lizard and rare mining bees, and your old Christmas tree can help rangers and Friends of North Wirral Coastal Park safeguard this important habitat.
Remove all the decorations from your real tree, and take it along to Christmas tree drop off points at Leasowe Lighthouse car park, Lingham Lane; The Gunsite car park, Green Lane, Wallasey; also Wallasey Central Park car park, Liscard Road, Wallasey, from January 1 – January 31, 2018.
The trees will be used to trap and stabilise sand, reversing erosion. Find out more about the Friends of North Wirral Coastal Park on Facebook.
Alternatively, have your Christmas tree collected and recycled by Wirral Hospice St John’s from your door and raise vital funds for your local hospice and other local charities. They are collecting from the following postcodes: CH41, CH42, CH43, CH44, CH45, CH46, CH47, CH48, CH49, CH60, CH61, CH62, CH63 and CH64 from 6th to 11th January 2018.
Remember: No artificial trees, no tinsel, no decorations, no lights. Just the tree!
