Virginia communities offer Christmas tree recycling

Canadians will send more than 540,000 tonnes of wrapping paper and gift bags to the garbage dump this year and Christmas presents are the biggest culprit

The time has come to part ways with the lovely family Christmas tree. The City will give away a limited number of small tree seedlings and provide volunteers to help unload trees for residents who bring their Christmas trees for recycling during these dates.

However, Christmas trees can build up sap that can be unsafe to burn indoors, and creosote that these trees produce isn't good for chimneys or exhausts.

Traditionally, the evergreen fir tree was used to celebrate winter festivals (pagan and Christian) for thousands of years.

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

Locals can now drop off their trees at either the Central Landfill in Newark, or the Berlin, Pocomoke, or Snow Hill Homeowners Convenience Centers. If you couldn't afford a real plant, people made pyramids of woods and they would decorate to look like a tree with paper, apples and candles.
