Recycle Live Trees, Garlands
Comal County Recycling Center began accepting used live Christmas trees and garland at no cost on Dec. 27.
The center, located at 281 Resource Drive in New Braunfels, will accept free of charge any used live Christmas greenery through Jan. 20, says James Tart, coordinator of the Moe Schwab Recycling Center.
Residents are asked to remove tinsel, ornaments and other decorations before bringing their greenery for recycling.
“This is a service we provide to county residents every year,” Tart said. “We’d rather mulch this greenery and offer it back to residents for use in their gardens than have it sitting in the landfill.”
All other brush will continue to be subject to the usual recycling fees. Artificial trees and greenery are not accepted for recycling.
