Where to throw away your old Christmas tree

Springdale Public Works Aiding in Tree Disposal Until Jan. 12

The town will also work with the Cape Fear Surfrider Foundation again this year in a dune re-building program using the recycled Christmas trees. Residents and property owners can drop off trees at the landfill for free through January 31.

Properties in the French Quarter or DDD, served by Empire Services, should place their trees curbside before 4 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11.

In Prince William County, residents can drop off their cut trees at several locations: the Prince William County Landfill; the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility; Leesylvania State Park; or Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative in Gainesville. Others require homeowners to drop off old trees.

Residents with yard waste collection can set their trees, including live ones, at the curb by 6 a.m. on their regularly scheduled yard waste collection day.

"Live" Christmas trees with root balls and artificial trees can not be collected as yard trim.

Residents seeking to dispose of artificial trees should contact the city to schedule a large-item collection or drop the tree off at the Citizens Convenience and Recycling Center at 3550 Lawson Road.

Groot will collect Christmas trees at no charge on residents' normal collection day throughout the month, according to a news release from the village.

"We place them on wooden pallet habitat structures to diversify the habitat, or sink just the trees themselves", Ron Brooks, director of fisheries for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, said in a news release a year ago describing the practice. According to the city's website, the trees are ground into mulch at the Twin Chimneys Landfill.

Drop-off sites will also be available at the East and West Bank Bridge Parks in Destrehan and Luling until January 17.

Southeastern Louisiana University, the city of Hammond and Middendorf's Restaurant in Manchac are partnering to provide drop-off sites for Christmas trees, the university said. Mondays through Thursdays, and 8 to 10 a.m. on Fridays. The site is open from 4 to 8 p.m. Before putting the trees on the curb, make sure to strip off any lights, tinsel, garland, ornaments, tree stands and plastic bags.

Ace Environmental will collect Christmas trees at the curb in Simpsonville.

Bring trees to city garage on Jones Street. Call the city for more information.
