Take your tree to Crozet Park so that Albemarle County can convert them into mulch.
As in the past, the Albemarle County Parks & Recreation Department will host its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program beginning December 26, 2012 through January 16, 2013. The Christmas Tree Recycling Program collects discarded Christmas trees which are chipped into mulch and then offered to the public at no cost. This program has been in operation since 1988 and recycles over 2400 trees each year, which in turn yields over 114 cubic yards of mulch. Not only does this recycling program provide citizens a place to dispose of a potentially large and cumbersome item, it also reduces the impact on our landfill.
Don’t forget to undecorated your tree first.
