CAROLINA BEACH  - Live Christmas Trees are a great way to celebrate the season but once the gifts are open and the decorations are stored, it's time to recycle.
As a free service to New Hanover County residents, the county’s Environmental Management Department is offering Christmas tree recycling beginning December 26 through January 31.
"We are pleased to partner with The Home Depot and the City of Wilmington to provide Christmas tree recycling services for our residents again this
year,” said Environmental Management Director Joe Suleyman. “Real Christmas trees and wreaths are biodegradable and we can recycle them into mulch and compost after the holidays are over."
Trees and wreaths must have all lights, ornaments, stands, and tinsel removed, and artificial trees cannot be accepted. Residents are asked to stack the trees neatly as space is
limited and demand is expected to be high. The drop-off locations are:
Home Depot, 5511 Carolina Beach Road
Home Depot, 210 Eastwood Road
New Hanover County Landfill, 5210 US Highway 421 North
Fenced-in areas in the Home Depot parking lots will be marked with signage designating the drop-off locations.
This program is funded and coordinated by the New Hanover County Environmental Management Department, with support from the City of Wilmington
Sanitation Department, and the Home Depot. Learn more at Recycling.NHCgov.com or call Environmental Management at (910) 798-4400, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Local municipalities including Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington
have yet to issue notices about their own tree recycling programs, but will likely catch up and issue notices following the Christmas holiday.
