Christmas Tree Recycling

Recycle live Christmas trees after the holidaysAccording to the Environmental Protection Agency, almost 33 million live Christmas trees are sold each year in North America. After Christmas, look for ways to recycle real Christmas trees instead of sending them to the landfill. Communities across the country organize drop-off locations for collecting trees that are later turned into mulch for hiking trails, tree fences to protect coastal wetlands, and habitats for wildlife. Find recycling centers for Christmas trees by going to Earth 911 to find a location close to your home.

*Remember to remove the stand, all lights, garland, tinsel, and decorations before recycling.
