Recycle your tree with Grinding of Greens

Beaufort County residents have a chance to help the environment and make good use of their old Christmas trees by taking part in the annual Grinding of the Greens project. With the help of the Keep Beaufort County Beautiful and the Beaufort County Solid Waste Recycling, owners can return their Christmas trees to the land as mulch. This process also saves room at the landfill.

There will be seven locations for Christmas tree disposal beginning December 26, 2012. Residents can drop off their trees, day or night, at one of the following locations.

• Lady’s Island: Sea Island Parkway next to Huddle House

• Lady’s Island: Pleasant Point Road at the Family Tree Christmas Tree Farm

• Beaufort: Beaufort Plaza near the Plaza Theaters

• Port Royal: The Naval Heritage Park off Ribaut Road

Please remove all ornaments, tinsel, and holiday lights. Mulching will take place Saturday, January 12 between 8 and 11 a.m. Mulch will be given away free of charge to anyone who brings a container to haul it away.
