Are you looking for a place to dispose your Christmas tree once the festivities are over? While you may see pieces of evergreen or even a whole tree out on the curb ready for the garbage man to pick up, there are much better ways to dispose of your Christmas tree. In Colorado there are many programs designed to recycle your Christmas tree.
If you are in Westminster, Colorado you can take your Christmas tree to the lower parking lot at City Park Fitness Center. The City Park Fitness center is located in Westminster, Colorado at 10475 Sheridan Blvd. Head north on Sheridan just one block past 104th and look for signs directing you to the drop off area. Westminster City has not yet released a date for their Christmas tree recycling drop off but can be contacted at 303-460-9690 closer to the holidays.
ArborScape offers local Christmas tree pick up beginning in January for a $15 per tree fee. There is a wait list for the Christmas treerecycling program so be sure to call them at 303-795-2381 and schedule early. When you call to schedule, you will be given a pick up date and asked to have your tree on the curb by 8 am. Your tree will then be picked up and taken for recycling and be turned into mulch for organic uses.
Also be sure to check with your local Boy Scouts troop. Last year troop 484 in Westminster, CO set up a service to pick up your tree and drop it off at a local recycling center. This service would be especially useful for the elderly, disabled, or others who are unable to get to the recycling center themselves.
Some local trash services in the Westminster area offer Christmas tree recycling. Be sure to call your trash service company and ask them.
Rather than spending time cutting your tree into specified sized pieces just to have it tossed into a landfill, recycle your Christmas whole and have it turned into organic mulch to help beautify our county.
