Don't trash your Christmas tree in the landfill, recycle it back to nature. When you take the tree to the drop-off location, make certain it is free of tinsel, lights, tree stand, ornaments, flocking--EVERYTHING! Trees are then shredded and turned to mulch. They are used on trails in the parks and mulch by your neighbors, so they must be clean.
This is open to all Rutherford County residents. Take your Christmas tree to the location that is most convenient to you. For more information, contact Environmental Education Coordinator Mimi Keisling at 615-542-4633 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
