[ARCHIVED] Burlington County offering free ‘Treecycling’ at Resource Recovery Complex

tree web

In with the new year, out with the Christmas tree. But what to do with it?

Burlington County residents are encouraged to bring their real or live Christmas trees to the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex at 22000 Burlington-Columbus Road on the Florence-Mansfield border where they will be chipped and composted. 

The County’s “Treecycling” service is offered at the complex Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 5 PM and Saturdays from 7 AM to noon.

The complex cannot recycle artificial, bagged or flocked trees.  All stands, lights, tinsel, wires, ornaments and garland must be removed. 

Burlington County Commissioner Tom Pullion said recycling your discarded tree is the environmentally friendly way to start off the new year.

“With the holidays now over, many residents are now packing up their holiday decorations and taking down their trees,” said Pullion, the Board’s liaison to the Department of Solid Waste and Recycling. “We want to remind everyone that this treecycling service is available free of charge. It’s the green way to ring in 2021 and it also helps save money for our municipalities by reducing the amount of waste entering our landfills.”

Several municipalities also offer curbside collection and or a drop-off for discarded trees. Residents should contact their local municipality to verify when collections occur and any special requirements or restrictions.

Information about curbside tree collections is also available on the county’s RecycleCoach app. The free app has information about the County’s recycling program and accepted materials, as well as updates and alerts about collection schedules for each town and tips and advice about recycling.

The RecycleCoach app can be downloaded from iTunes or the GooglePlay app store. For resdients without smart phones, a PC/Laptop version is available at https://www.co.burlington.nj.us/1602/Recycle-Coach.

For more information, call 609-499-1001, ext. 271 or 272 or email recycle@co.burlington.nj.us.
