Do the Right Thing – Recycle Your Christmas Tree!

Broward County, FL – A holiday reminder: Our free Chip-a-Tree program gives Broward County residents an option for disposing of their used Christmas trees in an environmentally friendly way. Simply remove all decorations from your tree, then drop it off at one of the dozen participating locations, where it will be recycled and the mulch used for landscaping throughout our park system. The program starts the day after Christmas (Tuesday, December 26th) and runs through Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 15th).
