How and where to get rid of your Christmas tree

Have a safe and worry free Christmas

Live Christmas trees are biodegradable, which means they can be reused or recycled for other purposes.

"Remove your decorations, your lights and don't leave them in the plastic tree bags", he said.

Trees can be dropped off at the Solid Waste Authority in Farmington or at the recycling drop off in the lot behind the Marion County visitors bureau in Fairmont.

Terry Harris drops off his Christmas tree at the Let's Chip In Depot in Kildonan Park Wednesday morning.

Lastly, the City of Springfield's Yardwaste Recycling Center will take your tree for free until January 31. Call before January 12 to have your tree picked up and recycled for a suggested donation of $7 for trees shorter than 6 feet, and $10 for larger trees.

If disposing of a Christmas tree at home, treat the tree as garden waste.

You have several options in DE if you would prefer to recycle your natural Christmas tree, instead of tossing it into the trash.

Christmas trees are no longer accepted for recycling at any of DNREC's Delaware State Parks. They should be dropped near the posted "Christmas Tree" signs at each location.

The tree pickup and brush collection will coordinate with residents' regular garbage pickup, according to the public works department's website. The recycling center is open from 7 5 p.m.

The landfill is now on winter hours of 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and will be closed New Year's Day.

Artificial or flocked trees can be scheduled for bulk pickup by calling 972-292-5900.

Trees are used to provide wildlife habitat for rabbits, quail and songbirds. The area for the trees is clearly marked. Do not lean the tree against any structures and instead place it in a designated decomposition pile.

MoDNR officials said residents should never burn a tree in wood stoves or fireplaces if it is still green because the resins could cause a flue fire.

The free service, which preserves landfill space and protects the environment, is available to Henrico residents only.
