Sites offer Christmas tree recycling

By NORTHWEST HERALD

WOODSTOCK –As residents “undeck the halls” this year, they are encouraged to do something good for the environment and recycle their Christmas trees.

Now through Jan. 15, three drop-off locations are available that will help keep holiday trees out of the landfills.

Trees are processed into mulch, and mulch will be available free of charge at a later date.

The drop-off locations will be at Glacial Park in Ringwood (off Harts Road parking lot); at Rush Creek in Harvard (at twin oaks parking area – west of pond); and at the Algonquin Township headquarters in Cary.

Tinsel and decorations must be removed.

If trees are transported in a bag, they should be removed from the bag. No commercial drop-offs will be accepted. For details, call 815-␚338-6223.

The recycling effort is sponsored by the Sustainability Committee of McHenry County Conservation District. By NORTHWEST HERALD
