Local Christmas Tree Recycling Programs

As you gear up for the holidays you purchase and decorate your Christmas tree. During the holidays your Christmas tree provides visual pleasure, adds to your holiday cheer and is the centerpiece of your home.
Then after the season is over, it’s time to dispose of your tree. A great question you probably have is, “How can I dispose of my Christmas tree in an easy and environmentally friendly way?”
Across the U.S. many municipalities and local Christmas tree farms have a Christmas tree recycling program. The cities and farms generally have various Christmas tree drop-off locations, making this convenient for their residents. Local fire stations and conveniently placed retailers like Home Depot are oftentimes the drop-off locations.
When the trees are dropped-off they are usually chipped and turned into organic mulch that can be re-used. This not only saves dwindling landfill space, but also provides a simple and environmentally conscious means of disposal. As an added benefit, you may be able to coordinate free mulch delivery if you make a request to the disposal vendor.
Christmas tree farmers plant thousands of trees that add cheer to our holidays, but dumping these trees just adds to the waste in our overflowing landfills. An easier and many times more convenient solution is to participate in your local Christmas tree recycling program.
Contact your local government or a local tree farm to find out the nearest Christmas Tree recycling drop-off location. Happy Holidays!
