Are you pining for a way to sustainably discard your live Christmas tree after the holidays? Fort Bragg and the community will offer several options for live Christmas tree recycling.
Corvias Military Living will offer a curbside Christmas tree collection through Jan. 17 for residents of Fort Bragg post housing. Residents may place their Christmas trees at the curb on their designated trash collection days for recycling. Residents may contact their neighborhood centers for details.
The Fort Bragg landfill will accept Christmas trees for recycling as well. Fort Bragg personnel and residents can now take their trees to the landfill. The landfill access is located off Longstreet Road just before the access control point. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Call 396-6873 or 432-0295 for more information.
The City of Fayetteville and other local municipalities may offer Christmas tree recycling.
Residents should contact their local municipalities or waste management providers for information regarding Christmas tree collection and recycling.
Please remove all lights, decorations and stands before recycling live Christmas trees.
Do not burn Christmas trees or their branches. Soft woods from fresh pines and firs are more flammable than seasoned hard woods.
Fires generated by Christmas trees can rapidly burn out of control and create an accumulation of a combustible and potentially dangerous compound called creosote in fireplaces and chimneys.
