'Free coffee if you recycle your Christmas tree'

Hillhead Bookclub wants people to think green after Christmas

A West End bar restaurant is giving people an incentive to go green after Christmas.

Hillhead Bookclub is offering a free cup of coffee to people who recycle their trees at Kelvingrove Park.

The venue posted a picture of staff taking their tree away for disposal.

The caption challenged people to do the same - in return for a free coffee.

“Recycle your tree!

“The boys are taking our Christmas trees down to Kelvingrove Park.

Help

“There’s an area just on Kelvinway where you can recycle your tree up until the 31st January.

“Take a wee piccy of you recycling your tree & we’ll give you a free cup of coffee.”

Trees can be left at Kelvingrove Park where they will be mulched.

A spokesperson told Glasgow West End Today that staff wanted to help the environment.

“Following COP26 we’re all much more aware of how much work there is to be done for the environment.

“At Bookclub we had a few different organisations in during COP26 who really opened our eyes & provided useful insight in to how we as a Bar can do our bit.

“For example, we’ve recently switched from bottled wine to recyclable barrels.

“Recycling our tree is the simplest task but better than just sticking it in the bin.

“So go recycle yours & get a free coffee!”

Glasgow City Council has provided recycling at Kelvingrove Park for a number of years.

The grassed area opposite the Bandstand is already filling up with this year’s trees.

Some trees are being dumped in the street.

Since Kelvin Way was pedestrianised, people wanting to take trees to the area have a short a walk.

The extra distance doesn’t seem to be deterring people.

However, not everyone appears to be getting the green message.

Trees are still being dumped in the street even though the council regards that as fly-tipping.

A line of abandoned trees has already appeared on Highburgh Road.
