Instead of landfilling your live Christmas tree, tree-cycle it!
During the month of January, fifteen drop off sites throughout Westmoreland County will collect real Christmas trees for recycling . The trees will be chipped into mulch and used to beautify community parks, eventually decomposing into valuable humus to nourish and renew the soil.
Although operating dates and times vary between locations, all locations require that trees are completely bare of decorations when dropped off. This includes any tree bags or wrappings used to transport the tree to the drop-off site.
