Tubex urges tree planters to protect the environment by collecting tree shelters

by | 07 Jun 24 | Supplier News, Sustainability | 0 comments

Tubex launches its Tree Shelter Collection and Recycling Programme 2024 season with a call to action for all tree shelter users to fulfill their “commitment to the land.”

Recent grants, such as the England Woodland Creation Offer, make collection mandatory, stating that landowners must “remove and dispose of tree guards in an appropriate manner when no longer required, and by year 15 in all cases.”

Tubux says “the removal of used tree shelters is a collective responsibility”, and is putting a sizable investment in the scheme in an effort to facilitate convenient and responsible removal and recycling of its shelters.

Now in its third year, Tubex’s Collection and Recycling Programme recycled over 350,000 shelters last year.

Removed shelters can be brought to more than 15 hubs around the UK free of charge, or collected via a booked doorstop collection for a fee.

“Essentially, we’re asking stakeholders to uphold your promise to protect the environment, regardless of whether this is mandated by your grant or simply a desire to do the right thing by ensuring shelters aren’t left in the environment,” says James Taylor, product line director at Tubex.

“The hub network has been made possible thanks to collaboration with our valued partners, who have provided the use of their time and facilities. We are delighted to see this level of ‘buy-in’ from a wide range of organisations who are committed to making a positive impact.”

These hub partners include Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, Tilhill, Maydencroft, British Hardwood Tree Nursery, and Green-Tech.

The Tubex Tree Shelter Collection and Recycling Programme currently accepts used polypropylene (PP) or polyethylene (PE) tree shelters or mesh tubes from all manufacturers.
