Recycling your Christmas tree doesn’t have to be a headache this holiday season. I Love A Clean San Diego, the County of San Diego and the City of San Diego have joined together to encourage San Diego residents to recycle their Christmas trees in efforts to minimize the amount of waste sent to the landfill. You can put your tree to better use through recycling!
Why Recycle Your Christmas Tree?
When organic materials like Christmas trees, food and other yard clippings are sent to the landfill, they release methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times as potent as carbon dioxide in warming the atmosphere. Proper disposal prevents needless organic material from occupying space in our crowded San Diego landfills. Recycled Christmas trees are made into mulch, which is then used to improve soil health at public parks, local farms and homes.
