From YouTube: Weekly Spotlight - Christmas Tree Recycling


Now that the holiday season is over, it's time to think about what to do with your Christmas tree. If you live in the city of Asheville, you can use the curbside pickup during the regular brush pick up times. However if you live in Buncombe County, the Landfill is a great resource to recycle your tree for free! Simply remove all decorations and tinsel and drop it off at the mulch pile.

Speaking of which, if you want to purchase mulch at the landfill, they will have a fresh supply in January from all the tree recycling. It's only $10 for a scoop that fits the bed of a large pickup truck. Or you can scoop it in your truck for free! The only requirements are that you're a Buncombe County resident, and that you have a tarp to cover the mulch for transportation.
