Tree Recycling

Christmas Tree

Recycling Program

 

Ninety-eight percent of Christmas trees were grown on farms, not in forests, so at least it’s not as if you’re cutting down an ancient tree.  Each year, 10 million Christmas trees end up in the landfill.  While your tree won’t fit in the recycling bin with your newspapers and bottles, you can recycle your tree: many cities offer programs to turn your tree to mulch or wood chips.  Call (800) CLEANUP or visit www.earth911.org to find the tree-recycling program near you.
