Charleston County reminds residents to recycle Christmas trees

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston County's Environmental Management Department is asking the residents of the county to recycle their Christmas trees after the holiday.

To recycle a tree, all of the decorations have to be removed.

In some areas, the trees can be left at the curb for pickup while others will need to drop their trees off at a convenience center. All of the recycled trees are sent to the Bees Ferry Landing Compost Facility to be ground and composted.

People who drop off a tree at the Bees Ferry facility between Jan. 2 and Jan. 11 will receive a free bag of compost.

With the holiday, recycling days have shifted for some people.

If your recycling day falls on Dec. 25, recycling will be picked up on Dec. 26. The same one-day delay is also being used on New Year's Day.

The landfill at Bees Ferry will close at noon Tuesday and reopen at 8 a.m. the day after Christmas. On New Year's Day, the landfill will be closed.
