“By recycling cut Christmas trees, residents help preserve landfill space, reduce illegal dumping and contribute to cleaner air as fewer green trees are burned,” said Christi Cakiroglu, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful executive director. “Recycled trees are chipped into mulch, which is used year-round in park, river and open space projects to prevent weed growth, soil erosion and promote beautification.”
