• Recycled Christmas Trees Become Mulch
    Monday, December 23, 2013 at
  • Many cities offer curbside Christmas tree collection during the two weeks following the holiday. And many of the waste haulers that collect those trees will be sending them to Agromin for recycling. The trees will be turned into mulch and other soil amendments. We expect to receive about 70,000 trees this year.

    Before setting you tree out for pick up remember these tips:

    --Remove all ornaments, lights and tinsel,
    --Saw the tree into four-foot sections
    --Place the tree pieces into your green materials recycling barrel.

    New this year: many haulers are accepting flocked Christmas trees.

    If you live in a city without curbside tree recycling, check with your waste hauler for a drop off location. You can also drop your trees off at our 6859 Arnold Road site in Oxnard.

    Once the trees arrive at Agromin, they are ground up and will eventually turn into mulch and soil amendments. These recycled products are then used by growers, landscapers and backyard gardeners. The results are healthy and hearty vegetables, citrus and flowers. Christmas tree recycling is a great way to close the recycling loop!
