Recycle Your Christmas Tree at Althouse Arboretum

Student volunteers help recycle Christmas Trees at a previous
event at the Althouse Arboretum. 
Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Green Allies.

GreenAllies, in cooperation with students from Spark the Wave Club at Pottsgrove High School and Upper Pottsgrove Township, will hold its annual Community Christmas Tree Recycling Program on Sat., Jan. 9, at the Althouse Arboretum at 1794 Gilbertsville Road. 

The program will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

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

Members of the public are encouraged to give their trees a second purpose and drive them to the Arboretum where volunteers from the newly established nonprofit organization and local high school 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 GreenAllies with its mission to “Empower and support students to innovate and lead environmental sustainability efforts”.
