County encourages recycling trees

From staff reports 

Beaufort County residents who have decals are encouraged to bring live Christmas trees to any County Convenience Center during normal hours since recycling live Christmas trees saves landfill space. 

Trees should be placed in the yard waste bins. 

For residents who do not have Convenience Center decals, Christmas trees can be brought to the Shanklin Road, Beaufort or Simmonsville Road, Bluffton locations only. 

Please make sure all ornaments, lights, and other decorations are removed from the trees prior to recycling them. 

In anticipation of increased amounts of post-holiday waste and as a courtesy to other County residents, please remember to flatten all cardboard boxes before placing them in the appropriate dumpsters. 

Bubble wrap and air pillows can be recycled in the Plastic Bag & Film Collection bins at the Bluffton, Hilton Head, Shanklin and St. Helena Convenience Centers. 

Remember too, after the feast, recycle the grease. 

For more information on locations and hours of Beaufort County Convenience Centers, visit www.beaufortcountysc.gov/recycle or call 843-255-2736.
