Don’t forget to recycle that tree

Staff report

Carson City is again offering Christmas tree recycling in cooperation with Capitol Sanitation/Waste Management Inc. Last year, the city was able to redirect 43 tons of wood waste from landfills through the effort.

The trees can be put out with the regular trash from Dec. 27 to Dec. 31 or dropped off at select areas.

Recycled trees are turned into wood chips and find new life in area parks, are used for weed abatement projects and given to local gardeners free of charge.

Drop-off sites are:

• Carson City Sanitary Landfill

• Carson City corporate yard (south side)

• North Town Shopping Center/ Bully’s Sports Bar

• J.C. Penney parking lot

For information, call the Carson City Environmental Control Authority 887-2355, ext. 1019, 1048 or 1054.
