Christmas tree recycling gets underway as post-holiday clean-up begins

Christmas tree recycling gets underway as post-holiday clean-up begins

In 2016, Albuquerque recycled more than 12,000 Christmas trees, a trend which will hopefully continue to grow with rising awareness. The city says trees collected during this time will be ground into mulch and available to residents in the spring. Trees can also be placed curbside during brush and bulk trash collection, or call the Dallas Zero Waste hotline at 214-670-4475. When Mr. Ulfelder was young, for example, his grandparents lived in a MA community where old trees were used to rebuild and support sand dunes at local beaches.

The Southeastern Sustainability Center, at 2101 N. Oak St., Hammond, will collect trees beginning January 4 through the end of the month, from 7 a.m.to 4 p.m.

Residents seeking to dispose of artificial trees should contact the city to schedule a large-item collection or drop the tree off at the Citizens Convenience and Recycling Center at 3550 Lawson Road.

The service began right after Christmas and will run on regular trash and recycling days. Residents may also drop trees off at Cottonwood Park at 4051 North Story Road, Hunter Ferrell Landfill at 220 West Hunter Ferrell Road, Las Colinas Service Center at 5964 Riverside Drive or Southwest Park at 2800 West Shady Grove Road. And when we had the drop-off sites we had a lot of people from the county and stuff bringing in their trees.

The parish's Public Works Department will pick up Christmas trees curbside around the parish on January 8, 9 and January 10. Fridays and from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m.

KDFWR takes the donated trees, attaches weights and sinks them in lakes and waterways across the state.

A Turtle Cove trailer drop off site will also be maintained at Middendorf's Restaurant beginning Jan 4.

Christmas trees may also be taken to any one of the county's three trash and recycling drop-off facilities in White Marsh, Cockeysville and Halethorpe starting this week.

Alexandria residents can set their Christmas trees at the curb on their trash collection days by 6 a.m. As usual, trees must be stripped of all decorations and stands need to be removed.

If you live in an HOA or an incorporated town, check to see how and when curbside collection will be done.

Bring trees to city garage on Jones Street.

Check the Northern Virginia Regional Commission website for more information.
