Don’t let all that wood go to waste; use these tips to recycle your Christmas tree!
Now that the holiday season is wrapping up, it’s leaving waste in its wake. From the torn wrapping paper to the tree in your home, there are quite a few things you need to get rid of now that the New Year is just around the corner. While you’ve probably got boxing up your holiday décor and tossing all that tissue paper handled, getting rid of your tree is another matter entirely. Use these tips to recycle your Christmas tree and you can easily get rid of this big obstacle to returning your home to normal after the holidays.
- Tip #1: Try “Quid Pro Quo” Options Nonprofits often offer a tree pick-up services for a small fee. You pay very little money and they take your tree of your hands. Everyone wins in this scenario, because you can rest easy knowing the money you do pay is going to a good cause and you don’t have to worry about hauling your tree away yourself. If you’re having trouble finding a nonprofit offering this service, check your local Boy Scout troop.
- Tip #2: Call Your Waste Removal Company Lots of waste removal companies will pick up and recycle Christmas trees for a couple of weeks after the holiday. Call your local company to find out if they’re one of them and, if so, if they have any requirements. Flocking or an extremely large tree could disqualify you.
- Tip #3: Try Your Home Improvement Store If you’re game to haul your tree, home improvement stores like Home Depot often offer a drop off tree recycling center.
