E.J. Harrison & Sons, Newbury Disposal and Santa Clara Valley Disposal ask “Why not turn your Christmas tree into a gift to Mother Earth by recycling it?”
After Christmas, from Dec. 26 to Jan, 7, just do this:
- Remove all ornaments, hooks, lights, tinsel, nails and stands
- Cut into 4-foot sections and place in Organics/Yard Waste Cart on your scheduled pick-up day
- If you have NO Organics/Yard Waste Cart place the whole Christmas tree curbside on your collection day
- Flocked Trees also are accepted for recycling.
Apartment and condo dwellers, please contact your management to make sure they have arranged for Christmas tree collection.
Trees that are collected will be processed into various sizes of mulch by Agromin. The material is used to make several products that benefit our farmlands, orchards, nurseries, landscape projects and home gardens.
You can buy a wide array of Agromin soil amendments at a number of businesses in Ventura County. For locations, visit www.agromin.com, where you also can order Agromin products online. Do so and you’re giving a holiday gift that keeps on giving.
