Christmas Tree Recycling Options

2 Jan , 2020  

Happy New Year, Richland Countians! As the twelve days of Christmas wind down, you may be thinking about how to dispose of holiday greenery. If you purchased a living Christmas tree this year and now need to know how to recycle it, we have some suggestions. First, note that the tree cannot be recycled if it’s in your regular trash. If you dispose of it this way, it will either not be picked up or it will go to the landfill. In Ohio, yard waste has been banned from landfills, so live Christmas trees should not be placed with household garbage. Read More

Mr. Tree, as he was generally referred to, may have frightened you as a child or fascinated you. Read More
