Douglas Disposal Christmas Tree Recycling January 2021
Over 5 tons of holiday Christmas trees were recycled to be returned to the Earth as compost right here in the Carson Valley. Douglas Disposal Route Drivers did their part, picking up 573 trees from curbs throughout the Carson Valley and parts of Eastern Alpine County. We would like to thank all our Douglas Disposal customers who participated in this annual program. And, of course, a big thanks to Bently Ranch and Matt McKinney. This could not have been accomplished without their help. They accepted the trees at no charge and chipped them as part of their large composting operations at their ranch properties. It is good to start the New Year with a program that helps us all improve our soil and water quality and reduce landfilling of our natural resources.
