🎄 CHRISTMAS TREES (REAL) 🎄
Christmas trees make excellent habitat for birds and other wildlife if left outside after the holidays. If you have enough land, leave your tree out to decay naturally over time. If you know anyone with goats, talk to them–goats love to eat Christmas trees!
If not, our Johnson and Stowe LRSWMD Drop-off Locations accept Christmas Trees for free year-round. **Please remove all tinsel, lights, ornaments, and any foreign material from the tree before recycling it**
🎄 CHRISTMAS TREES (ARTIFICAL) 🎄
Unfortunately, artificial Christmas trees cannot be recycled and must be disposed of in the landfill. If you are disposing of an artificial tree, please drop it off at with the rest of your trash at any of our locations.
With thanks to CVSWD’s Holiday Waste Guide, available here.
