Trash & Recycling20 Dec 2010 07:48 am

More than 20 local civic and nonprofit organizations are working together to recycle trees this holiday season. For the third year in a row, the City of Philadelphia will not be collecting holiday trees for recycling. As a result, any trees left at the curb will go into landfills or incinerators, causing air and water pollution and contributing to global warming.

Instead, with sponsorship by Bartlett Tree Experts and Schectman Tree Care these volunteer groups are working to have trees chipped and reused to beautify local dog runs, community gardens and parks.

$5 suggested donation. Please remove all decorations.

Date:  Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Location: Columbus Square Park at 13th and Reed streets

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Early Drop-Off: At northeast corner of 13th and Reed, donation can be dropped off at 1415 S. 13th St (private residence).
