Christmas Trees for Conservation

Recycle your 2019 holiday tree!

By Sarah Boucher, Publisher Macaroni Kid Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Muskegon December 25, 2019

There's something wonderful about live Christmas trees.  The smell of fresh pine, the memorable hunt for the perfect tree, the uniqueness of each tree.  When the holidays are over, there's the dilemma of what to do with the tree.  Did you know that you can recycle your tree (for free!) and that your tree can become part of a conservation project right here in West Michigan?

The Muskegon Conservation District was formed in 1938, and remains active helping restore, protect, and manage our natural resources.  This year, they will be accepting live trees for recycling to be part of a stream conservation project.

From December 26, 2019 through January 9, 2020, live trees can be dropped off at 4735 Holton Rd, Twin Lake MI.  Trees should be placed between the cones just outside of the office area. There is no cost to recycle your tree!  Not only can you avoid extra charges from your trash pickup company or making a trip to the landfill, you can also help contribute to the conservation of our beautiful West Michigan area!
