RECYCLING PROGRAM TO COLLECT CHRISTMAS TREES FOR MULCH

Recycle your Christmas tree and help create mulch used to beautify and sustain local public gardens and parks.

There are 20 drop sites around the valley accepting trees free of charge from Monday through Jan. 15.

Centennial Hills donation sites include the NV Division of Forestry Nursery in Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs, 9200 Tule Springs Road, and Sunny Springs Park, 7620 Golden Talon Ave.

Donations are to be free of nonorganic objects such as lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments and nails. Flocked trees cannot be recycled.

The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension works with other community organizations to host the recycling event.

The trees’ organic material is chipped into mulch, which helps conserve soil moisture and keeps plants healthy. Last year, Southern Nevada residents recycled more than 15,000 trees, which created 130 tons of mulch for landscaping projects at local parks.

For a complete list of donation sites, visit cdsn.org.
