The City of North Richland Hills and Duncan Disposal/Republic Waste are offering a Christmas tree recycling program for residents starting December 26, 2015. To make recycling simple, two convenient options will be available:
Bare Christmas trees can be dropped off December 26, 2015 through January 10, 2016 at Green Valley Park at 7701 Smithfield Road, or at the parking lot of the former Food Lion property at 4131 Rufe Snow Drive, just north of Glenview Drive. Please place trees in the dumpsters.
Residents can place bare Christmas trees curbside for recycling by 7 a.m. on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 or Wednesday, January 6, 2016. (Trees placed curbside on your normal garbage collection days will be put in the landfill and not recycled.)
In order for trees to be recycled they should be free of tinsel, ornaments, bags, plastic and stands. Mulch from the recycled trees will be available for residents to pick up at the two drop-off locations January 12 through 24, while supplies last. Please bring your own container and shovel to load the mulch.
The City of North Richland Hills is committed to protecting our natural resources, promoting environmentally-friendly lifestyles and business practices, and encouraging everyone who lives in, works in and visits North Richland Hills to "think green."
