Christmas Tree Recycle Program To Take Place

The 35th Annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program kicks off next week. Area residents and businesses are asked to bring any live Christmas trees to the northwest corner of the parking lot at Norfolk Fire Division Training Center (302 E. Benjamin Ave.) starting December 26, 2023 through January 13, 2024 to be recycled. 

Recycled trees are scheduled to be chipped into mulch for use in city parks and roadways the following week weather permitting. 

Trees should be free of all ornaments, tree stands, and nails. Trees that have been flocked will not be accepted at the site.

The Norfolk Christmas Tree Recycling Program is sponsored by Keep Norfolk Beautiful, Nebraska Public Power District, and City of Norfolk Fire Division.
