What to do with your leftover Christmas Tree

What to do with your leftover Christmas Tree

But those trees will end up in the landfill along with the approximate 210,000 tons - that's 420 million pounds - of waste we put into the Laubscher Meadows landfill in Vanderburgh County every year.

"Our Environmental Management Department is going to be offering free Christmas tree recycling beginning on December 26 through January 15 for New Hanover County residents", Communications and Outreach Coordinator for New Hanover County Jessica Loeper said.

As a reminder, this program is for Christmas trees only, please no yard waste. If kept properly watered and taken care of, a live tree can last through the holiday season, but eventually it will begin to dry out and die.

"The township then runs all the trees through a wood chipper, creating landscape mulch that is then used throughout the park", Schulte said.

Emirates stops flying to Tunisia
The UAE's minister of state for foreign affairs Anwar Gargash also cited security as the reason for the travel restriction. Emirates said it would stop operating its Dubai-Tunis connection following instructions from the North African country.

There will be four drop-off locations for NHC residents.

In Albemarle County, the Parks and Recreation Department's annual program collects discarded trees, which are chipped into mulch and offered to the public at no cost. You can drop off your trees at Del Mar Park, Olympic Park or Saddle Rock Golf Course.

- All decorations, tinsel, lights, garland, bulbs, etc. must be removed from trees before dropping them off.

Only real trees will be accepted.
