Christmas tree disposal, recycling event Jan.12
1/11/2019, 6 a.m.
The Richmond Clean City Commission is helping residents safely dispose of Christmas trees by turning them into reusable mulch and sawdust through the “Bring One for the Chipper” program offered by the Department of Public Works.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, residents can drop off their trees at the recycling center at 1710 Robin Hood Road, across from the Arthur Ashe Jr. Athletic Center, and watch the tree run through a chipper.
This is the 10th year that DPW has sponsored the event, which also will include on-site document shredding, collection of hazardous wastes like pesticides, herbicides and paint and recycling of computer monitors, TVs and other electronics, for a fee.
Other options include putting the tree out with the Supercan on trash day or taking it to one of the city’s refuse collection points, 3800 E. Richmond Road in the East End or 3520 N. Hopkins Road in South Side, according to DPW.
