[ARCHIVED] Treecycle your live, fresh cut Christmas tree

Christmas tree recycling 2

The Public Works Department offers Danville residents a green way to take down their live, fresh cut Christmas trees and wreaths. Also known as “treecycling,” the act of recycling a Christmas tree is an easy way to return a renewable and natural source back to the environment.

 Crews will collect trees placed curbside with the yard waste collection and take them to the City’s compost and mulch facility. The pickup will take place on the designated day for yard waste collection.

 All trees must be free from plastic bags, ornamental decorations, lights and tinsel in order to be composted. Tree stands and all nails and metal stakes also should be removed.

 No artificial trees will be collected for composting.

 Residents may also bring trees to the city’s compost and mulch facility free of charge on Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The facility is located at 101 Airport Road (behind the Danville Regional Airport and beyond the closed landfill).

 The trees will be turned into compost and made available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
