DNSWMA Offers Free 'Treecycling'
From the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority:
The Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority and Hambro/WSG are once again sponsoring a Christmas tree recycling program. Christmas trees will be accepted at the Del Norte County Transfer Station at 1700 State Street until January 31, 2020. This offer is limited to one free holiday tree per Del Norte family. Lightly flocked trees are OK, but artificial trees, trees with decorations, tinsel or metal or plastic stands will not be accepted for free.
Tedd Ward, Director for the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority said “We are grateful to our contractors Hambro/WSG and Recology Del Norte for continuing this free treecycling service for our customers. Since 2006, Del Norte County residents have recycled over 45 tons of trees through this program. Recology customers can even have their tree collected at their curb.” Recology Del Norte residential and multi-family customers can have a tree collected for free by calling 464-4181.
