According to the National Christmas Tree Association, between 25 and 30 million “fresh-cut” Christmas trees are sold in the United States every year. Christmas tree recycling helps return a renewable resource back to the environment. These recycled trees usually end up as valuable compost, mulch or wood chips.
After the holidays you can recycle your Christmas tree as well as wreaths, garlands and cut flowers. Simply place botanical decorations at the curb before January 9, 2015.
For curbside pick up follow these guidelines when setting out your Christmas tree:
• Remove lights, ornaments, tinsel and tree stand.
