Recycle Your Christmas Tree!

The holiday season has come to an end and we hope you made lots of new and lasting memories with your family and friends!

As we enter the first full week of January, you might be thinking about tossing your tree into a regional landfill.  Instead, recycle your tree and convert the holiday greenery into fuel, mulch, or even food for goats!

The Chittenden Solid Waste District has created a schedule to either pick up your tree or drop it off at specified locations. Click on the link below for more information.

Reduce, re-use and recycle and let’s start 2015 the right way!
