The holidays have come and gone, and unless you’re somebody who likes to keep all of your holiday décor around your house until the spring, you are probably starting to place everything back into your storage space. But how can you dispose of your Christmas tree properly? A lot of homeowners will just place them on their curbs and hope that they get scooped up on a trash day. There are a handful of different ways to dispose of your Christmas tree, with a few being more ideal than others. Read on to learn more!
Recycling Your Tree
One of the very best things to do with your Christmas tree is to recycle it whole. In fact, a few communities require residents to recycle their Christmas trees and might even charge you a fee if you dispose of a tree the wrong way. If your neighborhood does not offer curbside yard waste pickup or you prefer to get rid of your tree in a way that will benefit the environment, bring it to your local recycling center. There are also a couple of non-profit organizations that ask around for used Christmas trees after the holidays. So, try doing a quick search online and find a spot to recycle your tree.
Repurposing Your Tree
If you took correct care of your tree while inside your home by feeding it and providing it with water, it should still be in good condition. There are a bunch of ways you can repurpose your Christmas tree this winter:
- Plant it inside your yard
- Chip the wood to make some mulch
- Use the branches to create wreaths or garlands
- Use pine needles to create fragrant sachets
- Remove all the branches and use the trunk to create:
- Wooden crafts
- Bird feeders
- Flower bed decorations
