Sites offer Christmas tree recycling

BUTLER, MERCER COUNTY AREAS — As the holiday season winds down, make sure to plan ahead on recycling your live Christmas tree.

Here are some local options for being green with your greenery:

■ A customer service representative at Tri-County Industries Inc. in Pine Township said to check with your township or borough office on whether trees will be collected with your regular garbage pickup since it varies from municipality to municipality.

Also, make sure to remove all garland, lights, ornaments and decorations from the trees before recycling, and artificial trees won't be accepted.

■ The borough of Grove City's public works department will be picking up residents' trees dropped off at neighborhood playgrounds on Terrace, Stewart and Rainey avenues, and Greenwood Drive, and McConnell and Union streets.

The trees will be mulched for the use of residents along with compost, which is stored at the recycling area off of Greenwood.

In Butler County, natural Christmas trees can be recycled at:

■ Back to Nature, 840 Mercer Road, Butler, through Jan. 31; drop off is free and trees can be picked up for a fee by calling 724-287-7921.

■ Seneca Landfill, 421 Hartmann Road, Evans City, through Jan. 31; drop-off fee is $5; phone 724-625-9000.

■ Slippery Rock Community Park, 320 N. Main St., Slippery Rock; free drop-off through Jan. 11; phone 724-794-8180.

■ Some communities may have a curbside pickup program - call your municipal building for details.
