NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – As a free service to New Hanover County residents, the county’s Environmental Management Department is offering Christmas tree recycling beginning December 26 through January 15.
“Real Christmas trees are biodegradable and we are able to recycle them into mulch or compost,” said Environmental Management Director Joe Suleyman. “So we encourage all residents to bring your tree to one of our four locations in New Hanover County to be recycled.”
Lights and decorations must be removed and artificial trees cannot be accepted. There will be a designated area at each location for the trees to be neatly stacked. The drop-off locations are:
- Home Depot, 5511 Carolina Beach Road
- Home Depot, 210 Eastwood Road
- Ogden Park, 225 Ogden Park Drive (near the baseball fields)
- New Hanover County Landfill, 5210 US Highway 421 North
This program is funded and coordinated by the New Hanover County Environmental Management Department, with support from the City of Wilmington Sanitation Department, New Hanover County Parks & Gardens, and the Home Depot. Learn more here.
