Arboretum to Host Free Christmas Tree Recycling

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by Green Allies.

The students of the non-profit GreenAllies organization will hold the annual Community Christmas Tree Recycling Program on BOTH Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, at the student-run Althouse Arboretum at 1794 Gilbertsville Road in Upper Pottsgrove.

Drop off trees between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The recycling day is open to everyone in the region and is free of charge (donations accepted).

Members of the public are encouraged to give their trees a second purpose and drive them to the Arboretum where community and student volunteers will assist each vehicle in removing the trees. 

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

This community event is sponsored by GreenAllies with its mission to “Empower students to lead environmental sustainability efforts.”
