The employees of Fayetteville Public Utilities will be recycling your live Christmas trees into useable mulch in the Grind a Pine recycling event.
Dates to grind your pine and cedar Christmas trees are from Dec. 26 until Jan. 4.
To recycle your Christmas tree, please remove all decorations, tree stands and tinsel to help reduce polluting the mulch. Bring your live cedar and pine Christmas trees to the designated location at the Lincoln County Museum on South Main Avenue. FPU tree trimming crews will grind the trees into mulch in the afternoons and leave the mulch there for anyone to gather.
You may come back to the museum site with your shovel to collect your mulch by the bagful or truckload. This is a first-come, first-served basis, so check the site regularly if you want to take the mulch home.
This is a free community service and recycling project co-sponsored by FPU and Keep Fayetteville-Lincoln County Beautiful.
If you have questions, please contact Gina Warren of FPU at 433-1522 or Gail Randolph of Keep Fayetteville-Lincoln County Beautiful, Inc., 433-8208.
