The Merry Mulch program is sponsored by Howard County Bureau of Environmental Services. When you participate in the Merry Mulch program, thousands of trees are kept out of the landfill. Merry mulching your tree will help to conserve landfill space. Christmas trees are taken to the compost facility and are recycled into compost and mulch. Curb side recycling of trees will continue through January 18, 2013 for county residents on yard trim recycle days as early as 6 a.m. or as late as 7 p.m. To ensure pickup, remove all tinsel, garland, ornaments, lights, tree stands, plastic bags, etc.; cut tree into 4 foot lengths and tie bundles less than 40 pounds. If you prefer, you may take your tree to the following tree drop-off sites January 2nd through January 18th:
Cedar Lane Park, 5081 Cedar Lane, (410) 313-7285
Grandfather’s Garden Center, 5320 Phelps Luck Dr., (410) 730-3131
Schooley Mill Park, 12975 Hall Shop Road, (410) 313-6130
Please remember to remove all tinsel, garland, ornaments, lights, tree stands, plastic bags etc. Just look for the “Merry
Mulch” signs at the above drop-off sites.
