The Richmond area offers plenty of opportunities to recycle your Christmas tree, but many of them leave it up to you to make the delivery.
While slowly dying inside your warm apartment in Glen Allen, VA for a few weeks, the tree will likely have needles falling out and need some preparation to avoid a mess in your house or vehicle (wrap it in a blanket at least or have the vacuum handy).
According recent information from Central Virginia Waste Management Authority, there are approximately 28 million real Christmas trees sold in the United States every year. Real trees are a renewable, recyclable resource. Christmas tree recycling programs grind the tree into mulch. Please be sure to remove all tinsel, bulbs, wire and bolts from the tree.
