The City Of Casper To Offer Christmas Tree Recycling
Casper, Mills and Evansville are once again making Christmas tree recycling easy and convenient. The three municipalities have set up drop off locations that will be available until the end of January.The Casper drop-off locations are: Paradise Valley Pool, South Mike Sedar Park, Agricultural Resource & Learning Center on Fairgrounds Road (by the community gardens area), the athletic complex on “K” Street, and Viking Court. In Mills, the drop-off is located on Wyoming Boulevard across from Town Hall. The Town of Evansville will be collecting trees at its compost yard on 5th Street. Drop-off sites are open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The Balefill compost yard will also accept trees, and is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Tinsel, lights and other decorations should be removed from the trees. Wreaths may be placed if they are removed from the wire frame. Christmas trees that are dropped off at the designated drop off location will either be ground into wood chips and composted or used by the Wyoming Game & Fish for erosion and sediment control along the North Platte River.
City of Casper trash customers who are unable to take their tree to a drop-off may call the solid waste office at 235-8246 to be put on the list for curbside pick up. Appointments for selected days in January are limited and need to be made by Friday, January 16th.
