The city's Solid Waste Division will be performing a curbside Christmas Tree Collection, according to the City of Prescott website.
As a reminder, the fire marshal provided examples of fires in recent years that involved dried out Christmas trees.
City of Prescott residential solid waste customers may also dispose of their live Christmas trees at the Transfer Station, 2800 Sundog Ranch Road, for free any time after Christmas Day through Saturday, Jan. 19. I love to feed the birds, so this year when my neighbour puts their tree out for recycling, I am going to relocate it to my back yard and tie it to the fence so the birds have somewhere to hide from the cats as well as a place of shelter to rest after they feed at my feeders.
After 25 years, I decided this year I needed a new artificial Christmas tree.
Before you drop the tree off, all decorations must be removed.
The first step in recycling your tree is easy: just put it anywhere in your backyard until spring.
No plastic trees will be picked up during this collection. "Even a well-watered tree quickly dries out and becomes a danger".
Scientists call trees and branches on the forest floor "downed woody debris" (the cool scientists just say DWD). It is an important indicator of healthy forests by providing habitat, sheltering wildflowers, holding moisture and helping build the soil. This small act of nature conservation can also help your family learn three lessons about how, even in death, trees are an important part of life and renewal in our Canadian forests.
The city will turn the trees into mulch.
After a few years, not much will remain of your tree.
