Christmas is over. Time to take down the decorations and cards, and find places to put all those wonderful presents you got. And if your tree is a live one, it’s also time to figure out what to do with it. The good news is, there are many places that recycle Christmas trees in the Raleigh, NC area. This article will provide information on how to recycle Christmas trees in the Raleigh, NC area.
In the city of Raleigh, if you don’t have a way to get rid of your Christmas tree, the city will recycle it to use as much. All you have to do is place it on the curb on your regular yard waste pickup day. Make sure that all non-recyclable items, such as tinsel, ornaments, and lights are removed from the tree before placing it out at the curb. Once the trees are picked up, they are resold as mulch and wood chips at the city’s Yard Waste Center at 900 N. New Home Road. For more information, call the Yard Waste Center at 919-250-2728.
The town of Cary (a suburb of Raleigh, NC) will be offering curbside collection of Christmas trees as well as wreaths beginning January 4th, 2011. Collection will be on your normal yard waste collection day. When placing your tree out at the curb for collection, be sure all the tinsel, ornaments, and lights have been removed. If you are a renter rather than a homeowner, you can drop off your Christmas tree in the designated spots at the Cary Citizen’s Convenience Center on Dixon Avenue, at Green Hope Elementary School on Upchurch Meadow Road in western Cary, or at Oak Grove Elementary School, which is off Penny Road just east of Kildaire Farm Road. For more information, contact the Public Works and Utility Department Services at 919-469-4090.
