For many local residents, the start of the New Year also signals a final holiday tradition: getting rid of the Christmas tree. Recycle your Christmas tree and receive a free three-gallon evergreen tree in exchange at the city of Palm Coast’s sixth-annual Christmas Tree Recycling event 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Palm Coast Fuel Depot, 22 Utility Drive.
DVD and CD players, computer monitors, keyboards, old wires, Christmas tree lights, Styrofoam and gift wrap will also be accepted for recycling by Girl Scout troops 966, 987 and 1307. No TVs will be accepted.
All trees donated for recycling will be ground and used as mulch to beautify the parks and trails across Palm Coast.
“It helps the environment and saves the city and residents money by us not having to purchase as much mulch for projects,” said Palm Coast Urban Forester Carol Bennett. “There are residents who come out year after year for their free tree to plant in their yard.”
City staff requests that residents remove all decorations, lights, tinsel and ornaments from trees prior to donation.
For more information, contact Bennett at 986-3722.
