Christmas Tree Recycling
               
               Drop Off Your Tree.... For Free 
                      January 2016 Special

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  (! Free Mulch ! see below)
  • 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.

Mulch

Drop off your tree and take a load (1 cubic yard) of mulch for free! Will be loaded for you.

Trees dropped off at the Earth Resource Facility will be ground into mulch and: 
 
  • Taken to a co-generation plant to be burned to generate electricity or
  • Used as an additive for compost at a local facility or
  • Used as a mulch at local farms and ranches or
  • Offered for sale at the Earth Resource Facility 

Benefits of mulch:  

  • Helps to conserve water in your landscape
  • Cools soil temperature 
  • Helps prevent the growth of weeds
  • Reduces dust on pathways 
  • Adds nutrients to your compost pile
