Free Christmas Tree Recycling

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Ken Hamilton at the SAVE Alliance Foundation.

The SAVE Alliance Foundation, in cooperation with Upper Pottsgrove Township, will hold the first-ever Community Christmas Tree Recycling Program on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Kulp Field, near the intersection of Moyer Road and Gilbertsville Road.

Vehicles should enter the Hillside Aquatic Swim Club parking lot entrance on Moyer Road anytime between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to drop off their trees.

The recycling day is open to everyone in the region and is free of charge. 

Members of the public in all the surrounding communities are invited to drive their trees to the location where volunteers from the newly established nonprofit environmental organization and local students will assist each vehicle in removing the trees. 

With assistance from Upper Pottsgrove Township, the trees will be chipped and donated to the new Althouse Arboretum, where they will used to cover walking trails.

This community event is sponsored by The SAVE Alliance Foundation with its mission "To inspire communities and their youth to forge the connections that promote environmental sustainability both locally and globally.”
