TUESDAY TIPS How To Properly Dispose Of A Tree

TUESDAY TIPS How To Properly Dispose Of A Tree

I LOVE a holiday season!  The parties, everyone's mood seems to be happier, the gifts (did I say that?...it is kind of fun to open them, right?...), the decorations...oh, the decorations.  So much fun to put up, not so much fun to take down.  I love a real tree and never know exactly what to do when disposing of it.  I'm a big recycler, so I hate just tossing it out.  I found this article to be very helpful.  In a location where you can't have a tree, but would like to?  It might be time to move.  :)  www.michelleforemanrealtor.com or michelleforemanrealtor@gmail.com.


How and Where to Recycle Your Tree After the Holidays

 

What Are Your Recycling Choices?

After the holidays, don’t throw your natural tree away!  Here are some tips on what to do with your tree after the holidays. In general, you have these options:


  1. Curbside pick-up for recycling - Most areas will collect trees during their regular pickup schedules on the 2 weeks following Christmas.  For curbside collection, there are often requirements for size, removing ornaments, flocking, etc.  They'll turn it into mulch, which may be free for you to pick up, if you want it!

  2. Non-profits that pick up - Cll for an appointment to have a non-profit in your area pickup your tree. Some boy scout troops are offering a pickup service for a small donation (often $5).

  3.      
  4. Drop it off - Take your tree to a drop off recycling center. Home Depot is collecting Christmas trees in many areas, free of charge. Most counties have free drop-off locations throughout the county. Usually, you may take up to two trees to any of the following drop-off locations at no charge.

   

General tips for most haulers:

  1. Remove all ornaments, tinsel, lights, and other NON-Organic decorative materials. This includes tree stands also.

  2. Trees are often required to be cut into 4 ft lengths; so you may need to cut your tree in half. In some locales, the trees must be cut small enough pieces to fit inside your green (yard waste) container.

  3. Flocked trees will often need to be chopped-up and disposed with regular solid waste. Not all areas will take flocked trees. Each area has different requirements, so be sure to check with your hauler's website (see below).

  4. Trees are usually collected curbside for two weeks after Christmas, sometimes the whole month of January.

  5. FREE Drop-off locations are also commonly available

  6. If you miss the collection period, you can cut-up the tree and place it in your green (yard waste) container for pick-up on the regularly scheduled service day; assuming your area has a yard waste collection program to which you subscribe.
