Tree recycling extended to Saturday

Snow, ice and single-digit cold could stay Mountain True from its appointed round — to grind up Christmas trees for mulch.

Because of last weekend’s snowstorm the environmental organization's annual Holiday Recycling Event at Jackson Park has been rescheduled for Saturday, Jan. 14, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at ballfield 6 in Jackson Park. Area residents are invited to bring their Christmas trees, broken string lights and used greeting cards to be mulched and recycled. Trees can be dropped off on or before January 14; lights and greeting cards should be brought on Saturday.

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 of the 4-H Project. MountainTrue volunteers will be on hand to help and serve free cookies and hot apple cider.
