Why your Christmas tree could be up an extra week

MountainTrue will once again host its annual Holiday Recycling Event at ball field No. 6 at Jackson Park from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11.

Area residents are invited to bring their Christmas trees, wreaths, broken string lights and used greeting cards to be mulched and recycled.

Trees, wreaths, lights and greeting cards should be brought on Jan. 11. Trees and wreaths should be stripped of all decorations and lights.

The mulcher has been provided by King Hardware & Rental and Hendersonville and Henderson County personnel will be on site to mulch the trees. Lights will be recycled by the Henderson County Coop Extension Service for the 4-H Project. MountainTrue volunteers will be on hand to help and serve free cookies and hot apple cider. Free mulch will be available to those that want to take some home for your garden and landscaping.

Don’t throw your tree away! Recycle it and turn it into nutritious mulch for your garden, plants and veggies.
