Put us on your gift list after the holiday festivities. Take your tree to one of seven Christmas tree recycling sites in Lincoln by January 15, 2017. Recycling your Christmas tree will save space in Lincoln's landfill.
Boy Scout Troop 8 will pick up Christmas trees in specific zip codes and transport them to a City recycling site. For more information on their collection effort, go to scouting4trees.org or call 402-965-1458. Residents may also contact their refuse haulers regarding tree collection.
Residents can obtain tree mulch at no cost at Hofeling Enterprises on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, January 16, 2017.
- At the site, remove plastic bags and put them in nearby trash cans.
- Make sure all nails, wires and tree stands are removed.
