It's time to recycle the Christmas tree

Close-Up Of Christmas Tree Decoration Indoors

Solid Waste and Recycling customers may leave their trees alongside their garbage carts before 6 a.m. on regular garbage day. Drop off undecorated trees at the U.S. West gravel parking lot on 21st and Arthur, according to the city's website. "Our Christmas tree recycling program is a way for residents to safely dispose of their Christmas trees and gives the township a source of much needed mulch".

You can also keep the holiday spirit going by bringing your tree, as well as a donation, to the Richmond Firefighters Association's annual Christmas tree chipping event.

To recycle a cut tree, Mission Country Disposal requires removal of everything from the tree, including tinsel, decorations, lights and even the little ornament hangers.

"As the tree catches fire, it is in a contained environment to where the fire hits the ceiling, hits the thermal barrier and then all of a sudden the heat starts to drop from the ceiling down lower until it catches everything else in the room on fire", said Palmer.

Lakewood has tree recycling until January 8 at Lakewood's Greenhouse, 9556 W. Yale Ave. One in every 34 Christmas tree fires is fatal.

Bills fire Rex and Rob Ryan, name Anthony Lynn new head coach
If and when Rex Ryan is dismissed, it seems QB Tyrod Taylor will be out the door as well (as La Canfora pointed out). For the first time in years, season tickets were sold out amid the kind of expectations on Ryan could create.

Non-Anderson residents can contact their local waste removal departments in order to find the best course of action to get rid of an old tree.

Christmas trees can be weighed down with cinder blocks and placed on the surface of a frozen lake, allowing them to sink to the bottom during the spring thaw. You could also smear peanut butter and seeds in pine cones and hang them in the tree.

The compost facility is open from 8 a.m.to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 8 a.m. until noon on the first Saturday of the month.

All landfills in the Regional District will accept, free of charge, up to 500 kg (1,100 lbs) of yard waste including clean natural Christmas Trees. Communities that don't participate in curbside collection can still have the county pick up their Christmas trees.
