Christmas Tree Recycling Program in Palm Coast ~ 2015

Mark your calendars now for the Palm Coast holiday tradition that preserves the environment and beautifies our city - the annual Christmas Tree Recycling Event on Saturday, Jan. 9.

Recycle your Christmas tree and receive a free three-gallon evergreen tree in exchange at the City's 9th annual Christmas Tree Recycling Event. The event will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Palm Coast Fuel Depot, 22 Utility Drive.

DVD and CD players, keyboards, old wires, cell phones, Christmas tree lights, Styrofoam and used gift wrap will also be accepted for recycling. No TVs, microwaves, or computer monitors, please.

All trees donated for recycling will be ground and used as mulch to beautify the parks and trails across Palm Coast.

"It helps the environment and saves the City and our residents money by us not having to purchase as much mulch for projects," said Palm Coast Urban Forester Carol Mini. "There are residents who come out year after year for their free tree to plant in their yard."

Residents should remove all decorations, lights, tinsel and ornaments from trees prior to donation. Local Girl Scouts will assist and will accept some recycled materials.

For more information, contact Carol Mini at 386-986-3722.
