Christmas Tree Recycling Begins in Las Vegas Area

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

Well Emmet County is giving people who live there an incentive to recycle theirs.

"The township then runs all the trees through a wood chipper, creating landscape mulch that is then used throughout the park", Schulte said.

"You can give it a new life".

Most US Christmas tree farms are situated in the foothill elevations of OR and North Carolina, and over half of those grown in the two states come from just six counties - two in North Carolina and four in Oregon. However, Christmas trees can build up sap that can be unsafe to burn indoors, and creosote that these trees produce isn't good for chimneys or exhausts.

But those trees will end up in the landfill along with the approximate 210,000 tons - that's 420 million pounds - of waste we put into the Laubscher Meadows landfill in Vanderburgh County every year. "We really want the naked tree placed out at the curbside".

In Douglas County you can drop your trees off at Bayou Gulch, Challenger Regional Park, Fairgrounds Regional Park, and Highland Heritage Regional Park. The trees from the nursery are planted throughout the Lancaster County Park System.

For trees to be recycled, all ornaments and tinsel must be removed.
