Will you be recycling your Christmas tree?

Interesting point was made to me today. It seems you need to dispose of your holiday tree before the end of january in some places in order for it to be disposed of properly for mulching, otherwise it ends up being discarded in a dump someplace.

  • It's fake so it'll get used over & over again

  • Nope. Mines fake, because I am allergic to real.

  • Nope, its not a real tree, so it goes back in the box for next year.
    When we do have real trees, we do recycle them at our local beach re-enforcement programs.

  • If by recycling you mean putting it back in the box until next year, then yes.
