FREE Recycling for Your Christmas or Holiday Tree

From now until Jan. 31, 2013, the Montgomery County Solid Waste District will recycle leftover live trees free of charge. The trees should be clear of ornaments, tree stands, nails, and plastic bags. These trees will be recycled into mulch by a local contractor. Montgomery County residents may bring in up to three trees per vehicle for recycling at no charge through January 31, 2013. Any additional trees and general trash will be charged at the standard disposal rates.

“The Holiday Tree Recycling Program is extremely popular, because it offers citizens an easy, inexpensive, environmentally conscious way to dispose of their trees after the holidays,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Judy Dodge. “By turning these trees into mulch, we are reducing the trash that is sent to local landfills.” 

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 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

For additional information, please visit www.mcswd.org or call (937) 225-4999 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
