  • St. Petersburg Offers to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Mulch will be left at the site for anyone who wants to use. Additionally, residents may bring their Christmas trees for recycling to the Round Rock Brush Recycling Center during any regular operating day.

Rather than dumping them in a landfill, officials are pressing for more recycling of the trees.

As a reminder, this program is for Christmas trees only, please no yard waste.

There's normally a fee for large evergreen items, but without the amount of trees around it's a great way to make sure they go to good use.

There will be four drop-off locations for NHC residents.

Local businesses can also drop off their Christmas trees, and for a small fee ($15 per truckload), businesses that sell Christmas trees can recycle their leftovers as well. Pickup started on Tuesday and ends January 12.

Trees that are kept too long have the potential to become fire hazards, so the Carroll-Columbiana-Harrison Environmental Group, based in those counties, shared a few tips to how to safely dispose of live trees after the holidays are over. These candles were soon used to decorate the tree, which later evolved into putting up Christmas lights and ornaments. Only live trees are accepted - no wreaths.
