Wake County recycling Christmas trees for mulch in local parks

Christmas trees are recycled into wood chips at a city compost site.

They are offering free Christmas tree composting until the end of January.

The City of Grand Island Utility Line Division will be recycling Christmas trees starting Wednesday and continue through Monday, Jan. 8. Port City Daily has compiled a list of local entities that will help residents dispose of used trees.

Customers without yard debris service can pay for an extra 32-gallon collection and put cut trees next to their garbage containers. Clarksville Parks and Recreation will recycle the trees. If kept properly watered and taken care of, a live tree can last through the holiday season, but eventually it will begin to dry out and die.

Recyclers are reminded to remove all tree stands, nails and decorations, and not to use any bags.

Home delivery has in recent years become commoditized, so that we now set our expectations in hours rather than days. Amazon has acquired Blink , a wireless camera startup that offers free cloud storage and no monthly fees.

There will be four drop-off locations for NHC residents.

In the Richmond area, Henrico County offers a similar program that turns the trees into mulch.

"Instead of throwing them out, our residents, any residents of the Valley, can drop off the Christmas tree at one of our participating parks", Yanez said.

If you have a real Christmas tree, the experts say it's a good idea to get rid of it quickly, before it gets dry.
