Christmas Tree Recycling
Drop Off Your Tree....
Do you use a real tree to decorate for the Holidays? Real, non-flocked trees can be recycled after the holidays for free. Here’s how:
Take the tree to the Earth Resource Facility
Take the tree to the Groveland Transfer Station
Call your local franchise hauler to make arrangements to have it picked up. This is a limited service and certain conditions apply.
Or better yet, chip your tree at home and use the mulch on your property
Please make sure that no tinsel, decorations or nails remain on the tree.
