Christmas tree can be recycled at Rotary Park

Christmas tree can be recycled at Rotary Park

Residents who recycle their Christmas tree will receive a free 3-gallon evergreen tree in exchange, while supplies last.

Waste Management also offers a service picking up Christmas trees with regular garbage collection on select dates, but the trees must be stripped of lights, decorations and stands in order to be recycled.

All decorations, including tinsel, lights, garlands and bulbs, must be removed from trees before dropping them off.

County officials are suggesting people recycle Christmas trees. For more information about tree removal, contact your local city, village or township offices.

Tree drop off is available from Tuesday through Friday this week., and on January 3 at the Hubbard and Dixie Highway locations. Wrapping paper and bags should be placed in trash bags.

Instead of adding waste to city landfills, drop-off zones turn trees into useable mulch and aid in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Large parts of Augsburg were destroyed in February, 1944, when the city was attacked by hundreds of British and USA bombers. In 2011, 45,000 people were evacuated from the city of Koblenz after a bomb was found there.

Non-city residents can take their trees to the Helena transfer station and drop them off at the sign that says "Pines for Perch".

During this time, residents may set out more than two bags of trash on the curb for free, without buying tags for extra trash bags.

Click the Christmas Tree Drop-Off Sites link for details. "Recycled Christmas trees generate compost to fertilize other trees and plants".

Trees left after that date will be disposed of by the Public Works Department. The facility is open from 6 a.m.to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday and 7 a.m.to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Live Christmas trees, with root ball attached, are not collected as yard trim. Hours: Saturdays and Sundays ONLY, 8 a.m. - sunset, through January 15.
