Recycle Christmas Trees on Oahu

Anyone on Oahu who took part in having a Christmas tree adorn their home has an opportunity to reduce the load at the landfill and take part in recycling his Christmas tree.  Christmas has come and gone and while some people have already taken the decorations off of their trees and removed them from their homes, others will do so after the New Year.

Regardless of when you take your tree out of yourOahu home making the effort to recycle it will not only lessen the impact on Oahu’s landfills but will also enrich the environment across the Hawaiian island.  The trees will be ground into chips and mulch to be in landscaping all over Oahu.
