In a national survey, 93% of consumers who used a real Christmas tree recycled theirs in some type of community program. Christmas trees are recycled on a large scale for several uses:
- Beachfront erosion prevention
- Chipping, for various things from mulch to laying hiking trails
- Fish habitats
- Lake and river shoreline stabilization
- River delta sedimentation management
Residents of the Town of Beloit will be able to drop off their Christmas trees at 3628 South Walters Road, north of the old brush site’s gate and across from the wastewater treatment plant.
