Recycle Christmas trees, other holiday products this weekend | Environment
The Vanderburgh County Solid Waste District will hold its annual Holiday Recycling Day on Saturday, January 5 from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Civic Center parking lot.
At this program Christmas trees will be mulched by Randy’s Tree Service with assistance from the Southwestern Indiana Master Gardeners. However, people are asked to bring their own containers if they want to take mulch home with them.
Residents will be able to bring a number of other items to recycle on that day including newspaper, mixed household paper, cardboard, magazines & catalogs, greeting cards, gift wrap, hardback books, telephone books, aluminum cans, steel cans, glass containers and #1 through #7 plastic containers.
The District has contracted with Wesselman Nature Society to conduct the drop-off recycling programs throughout 2013. The next program will be held at the old Wal-Mart west on January 12.
