Recycling Available for Christmas Trees

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Trees, what are we supposed to do with your branches? Many people are taking their trees down now, and Nevada County reminds you that they can be recycled…

County Deputy Public Works Director Joshua Pack says if you take them to the McCourtney Road facility, they are open Wednesdays through Sundays from 8am to 3pm. If you drop them off at the Cement Hill Road location and the bins are full, please place the trees neatly near the bins so they don’t roll down the hill. The trees will be transformed into material that can be re-used…

Also, on January 7, trees will be accepted at the Lake Wildwood Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Lake of the Pines Wastewater Treatment Plant, and the Alta Sierra Fire Department on Tammy Way, all from 9am to 3pm. The easiest way to recycle your tree, though,is to chop it up and put it in your green waste cart, if that option is available.
