SILVERBURN, the Scottish shopping centre in Pollok, Glasgow, will launch its community garden this weekend with a complementary Christmas “tree-cycling” service.

The service invites Glaswegians to drop off trees at a designated area in the brand new 1,500 sq ft community garden, next to the green car park between 10am and 6pm, January Saturday 7 to 15.

Silverburn GM David Pierotti said: “With the traditional end to Christmas now upon us many people will be taking down their decorations and wondering what to do with their trees this weekend. To celebrate our new green space here at Silverburn, we wanted to do something a bit special for the local community and to offer them a hassle-free disposal option for their trees.”
