Keep Lewisville Beautiful and the City of Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department are partnering together to provide free Christmas tree recycling to Lewisville residents from Monday through Jan. 15 at Lake Park (Lake Park Road and North Mill Street, look for signs at Turtle Trail).
Christmas tree recycling helps to reduce waste, extend landfill life, provides useful compost for residents and saves money, KLB stated in a release.
“The recycling program is easy and free for residents,” the release stated. “Simply remove all the nails, lights, tinsel, tree stands, and decorations prior to dropping off your live tree at the designated area at Lake Park, located in the soccer field parking lot along Turtle Trail. Signage will be onsite to direct you to the drop off location.”
Lumber, yard clippings, and trash will not be accepted. All residential and commercial trees from lots that don’t sell all their stock will be accepted. No materials will be accepted for drop off at Lake Park after Jan. 30.
Once dropped off, the city will turn your tree into mulch, which it uses throughout the year to maintain city parks, flower beds and medians. Starting Dec. 26 and running through Jan. 30 residents may bring their own containers to fill with mulch for their gardens and landscaping needs. Residents are asked to bring a shovel for loading the mulch. Mulch will be on a first come, first served basis.
