Turn that well-loved Christmas tree into a part of the city parks
Your Christmas tree was beautiful this year. All of your traditional hopes for the season shone through the twinkle lights and family ornaments, and the star on top was like the cherry on your holiday Sundae.
But now your tree looks like it could use a hug. It has done its job brilliantly, but between the cat pulling off the ornaments and the kids rattling the presents, it now looks like the “before” tree in “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.
And so you begin to work some post-holiday magic–find a way to disentangle the dressings (with your family memories still intact, of course), get the tree out of the house and into your truck, and give your tree a new life with recycling.
Any of the Hamilton County recycling centers will accept your well-loved tree at any hour of the day throughout the month of January. Your tree will live on in the landscaping of public parks and is also available for you to use in your own yard–mulch and chips are available for free pickup at the Standifer Gap Road location. So recycle your holiday spirit by giving love to the environment.
