Christmas tree recycling

Ready to take down that Christmas tree?

You’ve got a few options for recycling your tree here in the Wenatchee Valley. Options are:

Wenatchee Boy Scout Troop 7 returns this year to help people recycle their trees. Drop-off dates are Jan. 4 and Jan. 11, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. The Scouts will be at Stemilt Organic Recycling Center in Wenatchee, 165 S. Wenatchee Ave. (next to the Waste Management transfer station). A $5 donation to the troop is suggested to help support its programs.

If you live in Manson or Chelan, drop your tree off at Don Morse Memorial Park for the Lake Chelan Winterfest bonfire on Jan. 18. The trees can be dropped off for free in the marina parking lot by the golf putting course. Look for the marked area.

For those people living in the apple maggot quarantine area of Chelan County, the county’s Leavenworth brush drop-off site will be open Jan. 3 and Jan. 4, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. The site is at the intersection of East Leavenworth and Icicle roads. Cost is $15.

If you live in the city limits of Leavenworth, you can take your tree to the city recycling yard. Details are online. Limbs must be removed and cut to no more than 4 feet in length.

The brush drop-off site at the Dryden Transfer Station is open its winter hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Cost is $15. No brush from the apple maggot quarantine area is allowed at the DTS.

When dropping off your tree, please make sure it is free of all tinsel and decorations.
