Virginia communities offer Christmas tree recycling

Ralph Barrera

Plant it for next Christmas: If you bought a living tree, you'll be able to plant it after the holidays.

For those in the Cape Fear Region who celebrated Christmas with a live Christmas Tree and who are wondering what to do with the tree, look no further.

Trying to figure out what to do with leftover Christmas Trees?

The program, which began in 1988, collects discarded Christmas trees which are then chipped into mulch and offered to the public at no cost. The trees from the nursery are planted throughout the Lancaster County Park System.

Free recycling for live Christmas trees starting Tuesday through January 14 at the Adams County Regional Park located at 9755 Henderson Rd.in Brighton.

To recycle a Christmas tree, yard debris customers can put small trees in their yard debris cart for free; set one tree cut into sections of five feet or shorter next to an empty yard debris cart at no extra charge.

He said: "Against us most of the time Giroud played from the beginning so that shows the style Arsenal choose against us". Or (Olivier) Giroud when he is coming on the pitch.

Local municipalities and businesses are also encouraged to call the IDNR office to donate collected or unsold trees.

An estimated 550 square miles of U.S. real estate is devoted to growing conifers meant to be cut for Christmas trees, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, cited by Reuters.

Now that the presents are unwrapped and the cookies eaten, it's time to get rid of the Christmas tree.

Trees can also be dropped off at any of the City's Refuse and Recycling Convenience Centers or composting facilities.

All trees to be recycled must be undecorated (ornaments, tinsel, lights and stands must be removed).
