DRIPPING GREEN: CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING

We can't help you fit into your skinny jeans after Christmas, but we can take one post-Christmas worry off your list: The City of Dripping Springs is offering the city’s first ever Christmas Tree Recycling Program. Marcus Lees, owner of Lees Trees, has generously donated the services of his company to recycle undecorated Christmas trees into high quality mulch that will be given away for free.

Residents participating in the Christmas Tree Recycling Program should drop off their trees, also free of charge, at the Triangle, located at intersection of Hwy 290 and RR 12, from 8:00AM until 5:00PM on Saturdays, January 3 and 10, 2009. The mulch will be available on a first-come-first-service basis. Individuals picking up mulch should bring their own bags and tools required to carry it away.

Before depositing trees, all tree stands, lights, ornaments and other tree decorations must be removed. Please do not illegally dump any other items at the drop off location. If you have any questions, contact City Hall at (512)858-4725 for more information.

We'll post a reminder before that first Saturday.
