Christmas Tree Recycling

‘Tis the time of year for celebration.  The smell of gingerbread cookies, spiced apple cider and pine trees means its Christmas season!  Make your Christmas a bit more green by recycling your tree.

From the muncipal website:

Christmas Tree Disposal
Christmas trees will be picked up at curbside for recycling by Waste Management on Saturday, January 7 and Saturday, January 14, 2012. All areas of Mt. Lebanon will be picked up on those dates. Please have your tree at the curb the night before either collection date. The contractor has been instructed to leave any trees that are in plastic bags, so please make sure that your tree is not in a bag and does NOT have any decorations or lights on it, including tinsel. These trees will be recycled into wood chips and any foreign material on the tree could potentially damage the equipment.
Trees may also be placed at curbside for regular trash pick up. If you wish, you may drop your tree off at the Public Works facility yourself for recycling during this period. An area near the newspaper recycling bin will be designated with a sign for this purpose.
