Christmas trees can be recycled at six centers

January 08, 1995

Harford County residents can continue the holiday spirit this month by giving something back to Mother Nature through the county government's annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program.

More than 47,000 trees have been recycled and about 47,000 cubic yards of county landfill space saved since the program began five years ago.

Six collection centers at various sites throughout the county will accept the trees, stripped of decorations, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 14 and Jan. 21. When residents return their trees, they will receive a coupon redeemable in the spring for a free evergreen seedling.

Collected trees will be ground into mulch to provide nutrients for other plant life. Residents are eligible to receive up to three 30-gallon plastic bags of mulch at the Harford County Waste Disposal Center at Scarboro Landfill.

Trees will be exchanged for seedling coupons at:

* Harford Waste Disposal Center at Scarboro Landfill, 3241 Scarboro Road in Street.

* Bel Air Public Works Department, 705 Churchville Road, Bel Air.

* Susquehannock Environmental Center, 700 N. Tollgate Road, Bel Air.

* Harford County Highways Shop, 3111 Philadelphia Road, Abingdon.

* Kroh's Nursery, 3023 Churchville Road, Churchville.

* Fallston Yard Facility, Route 152 at the Fallston Park and Ride lot.
