Sedona AZ (December 20, 2012) – The City of Sedona is working with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality in offering an environment-friendly way of recycling your Christmas tree.
From Wednesday, December 26th, 2012 through Friday, January 25th, 2013, the City will be accepting Christmas trees for recycling into chips. Trees can be dropped off in the lot at the corner of Saddlerock Circle and State Route 89A. No yard debris please.
Please remove all stands, ornaments, nails, lights and tinsel from the trees. The trees will be chipped on January 25th and given to the US Forest Service to be used as mulch.
On January 5th and 6th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the City of Sedona and the City’s Sustainability Commission will sponsor its first “Christmas Tree Swap Program” as part of a citywide effort to recycle Christmas trees and reduce our community’s carbon footprint. On these dates at the above location, the City of Sedona will not only be accepting Christmas trees for recycling into mulch, volunteers will also be handing out free Arizona Cypress seedlings to participating residents while supplies last.
