Now that the holiday season is already over, except if you are one of those people who want to keep their holiday decorations around the property until spring, perhaps you are beginning to put all of them back in storage. However, what must you do with your Christmas tree after the season? 

A lot of property owners only put them on the roadside hoping that their tree will be picked up by the trash collectors. But there are actually some various ways you can do in disposing of your used Christmas tree. Here are some of them that you might want to consider: 

Recycling options

Otherwise, they may be charged with a fee once they are improperly disposed of. Once your community does not provide curbside yard waste collection or you like to dispose of your tree in a manner that can somehow help the environment, then you should opt to bring it to any recycling center near you. Aside from that, non-profit organizations can help you. After the holiday season, they usually ask for used Christmas trees. Hence, you could have a brief search online and you will find a location to help you recycle your Christmas tree easily. 

Repurposing Your Christmas tree 

Once you took care of your Christmas tree properly while it was with you by providing a water source and feeding it, your tree should still be healthy. There are actually several ways for you to repurpose your used Christmas tree. Some of them include the following: 

  • Make a mulch my chipping its wood 
  • Plant the tree in your yard 
  • Utilize the pine needles to create fragrant sachets 
  • Utilize the branches to create garlands or wreaths 

Eliminate the branches and utilize the trunk to create: 

  • A bird feeder 
  • Flower bed decorations 
  • Coasters 
  • Woodcrafts 
  • Firewood  

Local waste management services 

Most of the communities provide curbside tree collection every January as soon as the holiday season ends. However, there are usually special dates to pick up the trees.
