Do you have an artificial Christmas tree or real Christmas tree to dispose of?  Once artificial Christmas trees have outlived their usefulness and cannot be donated for reuse, they must be thrown away.  They are non-recyclable and non-biodegradable.  Real Christmas trees may be recycled or “treecycled” at any of the following locations:
