Carson City offers options for recycling Christmas trees

Staff report
BRAD HORN/Nevada Appeal Christmas trees fill part of the wood area at the Carson City Landfill on Saturday afternoon. Beginning Thursday, it'll be too late for curb pickup or to drop off a tree in one of the dumpsters around the city. Bring it to the landfill or the city's Corporate Yard - the dead trees are made into mulch which is given away during the spring.

You can recycle your Christmas trees by leaving them on your curb for Capital Sanitation to pick up.

As in previous years Christmas trees can be placed curbside on your regular collection day or taken to one of the drop-off locations.

Trees will be chipped in the springtime and given to residents to use for mulch in their yards. Last year, tree recycling efforts kept 55.15 tons of wood waste out of the landfill.

Curbside collection is Tuesday and Wednesday.

You may also drop your tree off at the following recycling receptacles through Wednesday: JC Penney parking lot, Northtown Shopping Center, Carson City Corporate Yard on Butti Way and the Carson City Landfill.

Starting Thursday, take your Christmas Tree to one of the following locations for recycling: Carson City Renewable Resources and the Carson City Landfill

Remove all decorations, lights, tinsel and bases from the tree before recycling.
