2,000 Christmas trees processed for recycling

January 15, 1995

More than 1,500 residents have turned in Christmas trees at nine county tree recycling centers and received coupons redeemable for a free evergreen seedling. An additional 500 trees were collected from county yard waste containers.

The collected trees are ground into mulch to provide valuable 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.

More trees can be exchanged for seedling coupons from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Harford Waste Disposal center at 3241 Scarboro Road, Street; Bel Air Public Works Department, 705 Churchville Road; Susquehannock Environmental Center, North Tollgate Road, Bel Air; Harford County Highways Shop, 3111 Philadelphia Road, Abingdon; Kroh's Nursery, 3023 Churchville Road, Churchville; and Fallston Yard Waste Facility, Route 152 at Fallston Park and Ride.

Residents who deposit their trees in an unmanned county yard waste container or participants in curbside pickup can contact the Harford County Bureau of Solid Waste Management for a seedling coupon.
