Free tree shelter recycling now available in Lancashire

Residents in Lancashire can recycle their used tree shelters – also known as tree guards or tree tubes – for free at locations in Blackburn and Carnforth this summer.

Often seen by the side of roads and in new woodlands, tree shelters are tubes that are placed around newly planted saplings to help them grow and protect them from being eaten by animals such as rabbits or deer.

Tubex, the UK’s largest manufacturer of tree shelters, has officially opened a number of
recycling hubs across the country for another season, and is calling for people to collect
used tree shelters from their land so that they can be recycled.

James Taylor from Tubex, said: “Many people are concerned about legacy plastics in our woodlands – and quite rightly, as historically there has not been enough focus on removing and recycling them after use.

“With the help of responsible landowners, we were able to collect and recycle over 250,000
used shelters last year – and we hope to recycle even more this year.”

Two of these recycling hubs are now open in Lancashire at the Berry Superfos site on
Haslingden Road in Blackburn (BB1 2PX) and at Ashlea Landscaping on Scotland Road,
Carnforth (LA5 9RE).

These recycling hubs will allow foresters, farmers, landscapers and landowners to recycle
their tree shelters at no cost.

Anyone interested in recycling their tree shelters can book an appointment by emailing
[email protected] for the Blackburn hub or [email protected] for
the Carnforth hub.

Once collected, the used tree shelters will be recycled by Tubex and the recycled material
used to manufacture brand new tree shelters.
