Cayuga County residents once again have the opportunity to recycle their Christmas trees locally this year.
Cayuga Recycles, a program of the Cayuga County Planning Department, along with the Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cayuga County are holding the Trade-a-Tree program this winter.
The program offers Cayuga County residents an opportunity to drop off their Christmas trees (free of decorations) for recycling into mulch and use on county projects. In return, residents will receive a certificate for a white pine seedling that will be available at the district’s annual spring tree and shrub sale May 7.
Trees can be dropped off at the Cayuga County Natural Resource Conservation Center, 7413 County House Road, Sennett, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, Jan. 4-8 and Jan. 11-15.
