Virginia communities offer Christmas tree recycling

Edwardsville Township collecting Christmas trees

Christmas trees are recycled into wood chips at a city compost site. Trees will be put in the lake on January 10, weather permitting.

Edwardsville Township Supervisor Fred Schulte announced the township will again collect live Christmas trees for recycling at the Robert C. Stille Edwardsville Township Community Park, 6368 Center Grove Road.

Customers without yard debris service can pay for an extra 32-gallon collection and put cut trees next to their garbage containers.

Most US Christmas tree farms are situated in the foothill elevations of OR and North Carolina, and over half of those grown in the two states come from just six counties - two in North Carolina and four in Oregon.

When it comes time to dispose of their tree, Clark County residents have options. "We really want the naked tree placed out at the curbside". Trees will be accepted until February 24, 2018, which is when the annual Crab Orchard Lake fish attractor project is scheduled to take place. 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.

County park personnel ground the trees into mulch.

Only real trees are being accepted, and ornaments and lights should be removed prior to drop-off.
