Tree Recycling

Having a real Christmas trees is actually a pretty environmentally-friendly thing to do, at least when compared to artificial trees (PVC!!!) and the huge amounts of unnecessary wrapping paper that are used. The trees, at the very worst, degrade well and, at the best, are recycled into mulch for community use. Fortuntately, my community recycles the trees and makes the resulting mulch available free of charge to anyone that wants to drive up, shovel it, and haul it away. Sure, it may not be the highest quality mulch, but it’s done the trick in our yard a number of times in the past few years.

Does your community offer tree recycling? Is it curbside pickup (ours is) or do you have to take it somewhere?

I take it our tree to the landfill where it is recycled into mulch.

By the time I finally convince the wife that we need to take the tree down, in April, the city no longer collects trees.

We have to drop it off, did u mention tree recycling before? it just sounds familiar. Well yea, you can take extra brush down any time of the year and pick up mulch there too.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
