Fayetteville Public Utilities will once again be recycling natural Christmas trees by turning them into useable mulch in the annual Grind a Pine recycling event.
Dates to grind your natural Christmas trees are from Dec. 27 until Jan. 5.
Bring your cedar, pine, spruce or fir Christmas trees to the designated location at the Lincoln County Museum. Please make sure to remove all decorations, tree stands, and tinsel.
FPU tree trimming crews will grind the trees into mulch and leave it at this location for anyone to collect with a shovel by the bagful or truck load.
Mulch is available on a first come, first-served basis, so you are encouraged to check the site regularly for the mulch. This is a free community service and recycling project co-sponsored by FPU and Keep Fayetteville- Lincoln County Beautiful, Inc.
