Here are a few:
- Leave it in the Garden until spring and then break it up
- Break it up and burn it straight away
- Chip it for garden mulch
- Leave it by the refuse bin hoping it will be collected
As an alternative, why not return your tree to us for recycling?
All our surplus waste wood is recycled into wood pellets for burning or is chipped and fed back to our chipboard supplier. The wood pellets are mixed with other waste wood and wood chip from forest residue to make new usable wood chipboard.
We produce around 20 tonnes of sawdust and wood offcuts a week. All this is recycled automatically as part of our coffin production and all of it is used locally in the winter to supply the fuel for our biomass heater in the factory and that of a number of businesses nearby.
During the summer months when the heat load is low, we supply the same wood chips for recycling back into usable chipboard. We are lucky to have one of Europe’s biggest and most eco-friendly chipboard suppliers nearby.
Even this idea is recycled! Click on the link below…..
J C Atkinson coffins are made using: –
Trees, Geordie know-how and Sunshine
Plastic contaminates the ground and causes many harmful climate changing emissions when burnt.
We will continue to reduce our plastic footprint by: –
- Encouraging the use of biodegradable wood handles instead of plastic.
- Stopping the use of Cremfilm; all our fitted coffins now contain a biodegradable ASAP sheet as standard.

Just to let you know how elegant the Walnut Tree Oval coffin looked this morning - it caught everyone's eye, plenty of comments and none of the pallbearers had seen one like it. It really did look smart. The book for the name details is beautiful, really impressive.- White Rose Modern Funerals
Just want to say a massive thank you to you & your team for this coffin, we along with the Humanist celebrant, crematorium staff, family and friends thought it was absolutely brilliant, on route to the crematorium there were people on the street taking photos of the coffin and EVERYONE had a big stupid smile on their faces.- McKenzie and Millar - Funeralcare
Everyone commented on how unusual the coffin was. Usually people are too scared to go up to the coffin at a funeral, but everyone went up to see and spent time looking at the photos that were displayed on the coffin. It made is so much easier to be close to dad- Diane (on behalf of Poetic Endings Funeral Directors)
Mum loved the outdoors and nature. She was very environmentally conscious. When we looked at your Eco friendly coffins we knew we’d be able to find something perfect for mum. It made such a sad time a little easier as we know she would have loved it.- Mr & Mrs Singleton
I loved the design on the picture coffin, it really captured my mother’s hobbies. She loved bowls, and to have the bowling green on was a wonderful way to say goodbye.- Janice Doherty
We wanted to say goodbye to our sister Helen, but in something that was more than just ‘a box’. The different choices that were available in all styles was fascinating. We chose a beautiful American-style Casket and also got a separate keepsake in her memory.- Carl & Becky Taylor
