ECO PROJECT: Amersham Town Council raise £2,000 to increase biodiversity

 Published on: 19th January 2023   |   By: Megan Milstead   |   Category: Uncategorized

Amersham Town Council has raised money for local sustainability projects through a Christmas tree collection.

Residents could pay to have their old Christmas trees collected for a donation of £5. The trees were then converted into compost using an Eco Green Shredder and the by-product will be used to mulch trees and flowerbeds around Amersham.

At the time of writing, the project has raised more than £2,000.

Last year, the initiative generated six tonnes of material.

The donations were reinvested into the town council’s efforts to increase biodiversity and improve the local environment quality. This includes planting more pollinators and sowing areas with wildflowers.

A spokesperson for the council said: “The tree recycling project brings many benefits to the community of Amersham. Firstly, the trees are recycled, increasing sustainability; secondly, the by-product is used to mulch beds and trees around town. The project also raises monies which enables the council to bolster the local environmental quality of our town while engaging with the residents.”
