RIVERSIDE COUNTY – The holiday season always ends with plenty of returns, and the Christmas tree is no exception. Return a natural Christmas tree to the ground it grew in by dropping it off at a Riverside County landfill to be recycled into a nutrient-rich soil amendment.
Through the free Christmas tree drop-off program, natural trees collected at the Badlands and Lamb Canyon landfills will be chipped and combined with food waste from the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning to create compost. This program at Lamb Canyon is an innovative way to ensure that organic waste is diverted away from landfill burial, recycled and turned into a soil amendment.
Natural Christmas trees must be prepared for recycling by removing all decorations, lights, tinsel and tree stands. Flock
