GALVESTON, Texas – When it’s time to pack away the ornaments and remove the lights, don’t trash your Christmas tree – recycle it! Christmas trees can be converted into mulch and provide benefits beyond the holidays. Galveston Partners in Composting—UTMB, the City of Galveston and Moody Gardens — encourages everyone to go green this holiday season by recycling their Christmas tree.
Galveston’s Christmas Tree Recycling Drive runs now through January 20. All live evergreen trees, including flocked trees, will be accepted. To ready your tree for recycling, please remove all tinsel, lights, decorations and plastic or metal stands. Wooden tree stands will be accepted.
