There’s an Easy – And Responsible – Way to Throw Out Your Christmas Tree

Taking down and getting rid of your Christmas tree may seem like an intimidating task, but thanks to Burlington County’s “treecycling” initiative, you can remove your festive decoration and give back to the environment.

Residents of Burlington County can drop off their undressed trees free of charge at the Resource Recovery Complexes in Florence and Mansfield. Plastic bags, wires, lights and any other material should be removed, and artificial or flocked trees are not accepted.

“This service increases local recycling and is a money saver for our municipalities,” said Burlington County Freeholder Director Bruce Garganio. “‘Treecycling’ is an opportunity for residents to give back to the environment.”

These recycled trees can serve a number of purposes, including returning nutrients to the environment and enhancing parks.

For more information, call the Resource Recovery Complex at 609-499-5300 or the County Recycling Office at 609-499-1001.
