The Charlottesville Christmas Tree Recycling Program begins on December 26, 2009! As seen on the Newsplex website here are some details;
The sites are as follows:
* Chris Greene Lake in Earlysville
* Crozet Park
* Darden Towe Park
* Greenwood Community Center
* *Rivanna Solid Waste Authority Recycling Center on McIntire Road (*note: Sunday hours are 12noon – 5pm)
* Scottsville Community Center
* Walnut Creek Park
By combining forces with the Charlottesville Curb Side Pick-Up Program, the two programs collected over 5,600 trees in 2008, yielding approximately 268 cubic yards of mulch. According to the City Public Works Department, their curbside pick up will be the week of January 11, 2010. Trees must be at the curbside by 7:00 am.
Shortly after the City’s curbside pick up, the County and City Parks & Recreation crews will team up to chip the estimated 2600 trees at Darden Towe Park.
As a reminder, this program is for Christmas trees only, please no yard waste. Both the County & City programs require that all decorations, stands and nails be removed from the Christmas trees.
Free mulch will be available to citizen by February 1, 2009, at Darden Towe Park.
