Earth Calendar for January 6th and January 7th
After the holidays, don’t throw your real Christmas tree in the trash or set it on the curb. Real Christmas trees are biodegradable, which means they can be easily reused or recycled for mulch and other purposes.
Treecycling is the simple act of recycling your Christmas tree, rather than throwing it away at the end of the season. By doing so, you extend the tree’s usability by allowing it to be turned into something else.Hamilton County residents are invited to recycle Christmas trees and holiday greenery at the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District’s free program. Yard trimmings drop-off sites will be open on Saturday, January 11th from noon to 3:00 p.m. to turn Christmas trees and other yard trimmings into mulch. Remove all decorations, tinsel, ornaments and tree bags from holiday greenery. Locations for the yard trimmings drop-off sites are: Bzak Landscaping, Turpin Lane & Rt. 3 in Anderson TownshipKuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road in Green Township andRumpke Sanitary Landfill, 3800 Struble Road (and Colerain Avenue) in Colerain Township Landscapers and commercial establishments are not eligible to participate in this program and Hamilton County residents must bring proof of residency.For more information, please call the Recycling Hotline at 513-946-7766 or visit the website.
