Okay, so now that the holidays are officially over, have you started getting your house back to normal?
We have not, yet, but we will very soon.
If you happen to have a real Christmas tree, there are several different things that you can do with your tree after you get it out of the house.
One idea would be to turn it into something for the birds, literally. You can secure it standing up and then make pinecone feeding ornaments for the bird out of peanut butter and birdseed. You can also decorate it with an of the popcorn you might have strung for the holidays.
Another idea would be to find a friend that lives on a stream or lake and ask them if they want to throw the tree into the water as a fish habitat. The Army Corps of Engineers and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources drop trees in some large lakes through out the state. This has been the fate of many of the trees we had growing up, and it makes for some good fishing soon after.
The most popular option for disposing of a tree in an eco-friendly matter is having it mulched. This has been a very popular option the past several years. From January 2nd - 9th you can get a free bag of mulch if you drop off a Christmas tree at the Bees Ferry Landfill.
There are several other places you can drop off your tree if you don't have trash service or are unable to do any of the other options.
Here's a list of all the local places to drop off your Christmas tree:
Bee's Ferry Landfill 1344 Bee's Ferry Rd. West Ashley, SC If you can't make it to the landfill, you can leave your tree on the curb for pickup (but you won't be left a bag of mulch).
Charleston County Recycling Center 13 Romney St. Charleston, SC
Miles Jamison Rd. Landfill 130 Suburban Lane Summerville, SC
Sandy Pines Landfill Sandy Pines Lane Dorchester, SC
