Are you in the process of packing up your holiday decorations? If yes, then you’re probably in search of a place to dispose of your Christmas tree.
Ocean County residents are being encouraged once again to make recycling their Christmas trees part of their holiday cleanup. Last year, more than 1,400 trees were collected at the Ocean County Park sites.
“For more than 20 years, the Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation has collected Christmas trees at a number of our parks throughout the County,” said Ocean County Commissioner Virginia E. Haines in a press release. “With so many park locations around Ocean County to choose from, it is easy for our residents to access a nearby park where live trees can be dropped off after celebrating the holiday.”
In the past, the Christmas trees have been sent to the Ocean County Recycling Centers to be grinded into wood chips as well as beach replenishment projects
“This program not only helps out our residents, but it also allows the County to use the recycled trees for County projects,” Haines said.
Christmas trees can be dropped off at the following Ocean County park locations from now through January 31:
