The Town of Wake Forest is encouraging residents to make recycling a holiday tradition by recycling their Christmas trees.
Beginning Monday, Dec. 28, the town will collect and recycle live Christmas trees from residential homes according to its normal yard waste collection schedule. The trees will be ground into mulch and made available for free to residents upon request.
All Wake Forest residents whose yard waste is collected by the town may participate in the “Treecycling” program. To recycle your Christmas tree, please remove all decorations, tinsel, nails, stands and bags from the tree and set it behind the curb for collection. Residents are reminded that artificial trees cannot be recycled.
By recycling Christmas trees, Wake Forest saves space at the landfill and offers a valuable commodity to its residents.
Orders for mulch are currently being accepted. For more information about Christmas tree recycling or to request mulch, contact Betty Pearce at 919-435-9570 or [email protected].
