From now until January 31, 2014, Montgomery County residents can recycle their live holiday trees free of charge through the Montgomery County Solid Waste District. These trees will be recycled into mulch by a local contractor.
“The Holiday Tree Recycling Program allows our citizens to dispose of their trees in an easy and inexpensive way, and it protects the environment by reducing the trash sent to landfills,” said Montgomery County Commission President Dan Foley.
The trees must be clear of ornaments, tree stands, nails, and plastic bags. Residents may bring in up to three trees per vehicle. Any additional trees will be charged at the standard disposal rates for Montgomery County residents.
The Montgomery County Solid Waste Transfer Station in Moraine is located at 1001 Encrete Lane, and the Transfer Station in Vandalia is located at 6589 Old Webster St. The transfer stations’ hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
