|Recycle Your Christmas Trees|
Once again this holiday season, the Allen County Solid Waste Management District is offering its free Christmas Tree Recycling Program to residents of Allen County.
The National Christmas Tree Association estimates that approximately 31 percent of U.S. households have a live Christmas tree each holiday season. With more than 115 million households in the United States, that means over 35 million live Christmas trees are purchased each year. Allen County residents can prevent many of these trees from filling the landfill by recycling their trees into mulch.
This season's program will begin on December 26, 2010 and will end on January 14, 2011. Plastic bags, ornaments and tinsel must be removed from the tree. Wreaths are not accepted.
Trees may be dropped off at the following sites at any time throughout the program:
Fort Wayne Area
New Haven Area
