Christmas Tree Recycling Available Until End of Month
By Kristin Forbis, Jan 14, 2020
If you’re among the crowd that still has a real Christmas tree up or maybe it has been moved to the side of the house, don’t worry. There is still time to drop it off for recycling. The Vernal Chamber Conservation Issues Committee offers Christmas tree recycling each year. After removing all decorations, drop the tree off in the parking lot at 100 North 100 West in Vernal. Collected trees are usually chipped into mulch for landscaping and some are used whole for erosion control or wildlife habitat improvement. It's also always possible to do your own recycling by turning your real tree into a winter bird feeder by leaving it in its stand set outside and covered in seed balls, popcorn, berries, and peanuts in the shell. Cutting up the tree for firewood or chipping it for your own mulch are other good ways to recycle.
