Trying to figure out what to do with leftover Christmas Trees?

For those wondering what to do with their Christmas tree after the holiday passes, wonder no longer.

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

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.

Residents of the City of Richmond can recycle their trees through their eighth annual "Bring One for the Chipper" Christmas tree recycling event. Trees will be accepted in Marion until January 16 at Ray Fosse Park in the "Goofy Golf" parking lot behind the pool at 519 Parrish Ave. and at the northernmost picnic shelter parking lot in Pyramid Park at 1300 Bevabeck Drive.

With this year's Christmas over, it's a matter of time before decorations get boxed up and the Christmas tree gets tossed. Trees can also be "decorated" by hanging peanut butter filled pine cones, suet and seed mixes, or fruit.

Christmas trees are recycled into wood chips at a city compost site.

For questions or further information on Christmas tree collection, contact the Department of Public Services at 989-837-6900.

Tree preparation requirements vary, but for the most part, all branches must be stripped of ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire, stands, plastic and other added materials.
