On Jan 5, 2013, the City of Hendersonville will be accepting Christmas trees and recycling them into mulch for Hendersonville and Henderson County residents.I certainly hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their loved ones. I certainly did! It’s sad to see the decorations coming down. You spent so much time decorating your tree that you are probably going to want to keep it up at least until after the new year. But, what do you do with it after that? The City of Hendersonville has the answer to your Christmas tree disposal question. Recycle!

The first Saturday of the new year (January 5, 2013), the City will be accepting Christmas trees from Hendersonville and Henderson County residents for recycling. Just bring your tree to Jackson Park’s Ballfield #6 (801 Glover Street) between 8:30am and 2pm. They will turn all recycled trees into mulch, which works great for your spring garden. If you bring a bucket, you can take some mulch home with you. Just make sure all decorations and tinsel are completely discarded before you take your tree to the park. This service is provided absolutely free of charge.

Don’t just set your tree out on the curb for pickup. Recycle it into healthy, nutrient-rich mulch to nourish Hendersonville gardens in the future. Bring it to Jackson Park on January 5th for the Hendersonville Christmas tree disposal event. Have a Happy New Year, everyone!
