Mulch that Christmas tree!

Mulch that Christmas tree!

Christmas has come and gone, but we’re willing to bet you haven’t taken the trimmings off your tree. Once you do, dispose of your evergreen wisely!

Starting December 26, you can get your Christmas tree recycled into mulch. Until January 17, take your old tree to one of the seven drop-off sites—Crozet Park in Crozet, Greenwood Community Center in Greenwood, Chris Green Lake in Earlysville, Darden Towe Park on Elks Drive, Scottsville Community Center in Scottsville, Walnut Creek Park off Old Lynchburg Road and Rivanna Solid Waste Authority Recycling Center on McIntire Road—and curb the impact on our local landfill.

The county’s Christmas Tree Recycling Program is aided by the city’s Curb Side Pick-Up Program,” which will collect your trees the week of January 11, 2010 (be sure to have it at the curb by 7am!).

The resulting free mulch will be available to the public startin February 1, 2010 at Darden Towe Park.

Any readers planning to recycle their tree?


We wonder, what will the city do with the Christmas tree on the Downtown Mall?
