(CMR) The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has announced the beginning of its annual Natural Christmas Tree Recycling Programme. Collection bins have now been placed for the public to drop off their natural Christmas trees in the following locations:
• George Town Cricket Field
• George Town Landfill public drop-off area
• Spotts Dock, Savannah
“Every year, hundreds of enthusiastic residents participate in the Natural Christmas Tree Recycling Programme aimed to reduce the amount of waste entering the George Town Landfill. The trees will later be shredded, and free mulch will be made available to members of the public”, explained DEH Director Richard Simms.
Residents are reminded to remove all wires and ornaments from Christmas trees before they are placed into collection bins available until January 30, 2022. Details of the mulch distribution will be provided soon.
