Emmet County Recycling Holding Free Drop Off Service for Christmas Trees


Wondering what to do with that "real" Christmas tree?

For those that don't have a use for their tree after the decorations come down, CCH will have several drop off sites throughout Harrison County to collect trees.

The corps is also accepting trees in Mount Vernon until January 5 at Veterans Park softball field, Forest Avenue; Optimist Park at 903 Pace Ave.; and Airport Park at 1101 Airport Road.

The trees will be used for a variety of things such as mulch and to build habitats for fish in city lakes.

As a reminder, this program is for Christmas trees only, please no yard waste.

Compared to the current tax law, 5 percent of taxpayers would pay more tax in 2018, 9 percent in 2025, and 53 percent in 2027. But most economists believe the tax plan will push economic growth up by only a few tenths of a percentage point.

THE Christmas tree is the star of the show and in most festive decorative schemes, the tree is the celebrity and all the other elements revolve around it.

County park personnel ground the trees into mulch.

Local municipalities and businesses are also encouraged to call the IDNR office to donate collected or unsold trees.

In Douglas County you can drop your trees off at Bayou Gulch, Challenger Regional Park, Fairgrounds Regional Park, and Highland Heritage Regional Park.

For trees to be recycled, all ornaments and tinsel must be removed. The convenience Centers will accept Christmas trees during this time also, however, there is a $5.00 charge per tree.
