Before you buy a live Christmas tree this year think about how you want to dispose of it. The environmentally responsible thing is to keep the tree out of the landfill. But, in order to recycle your tree you must avoid flocking and tinsel of any type.
So, when you head out to find that perfect live Christmas tree for your house don’t purchase a flocked tree and don’t add flocking or tinsel to your Christmas tree at home. After Christmas remove your tree from the stand, remove all tinsel (if you added any), lights and ornaments and recycle your tree by one of these options.
Option one: The Stella Roberts Recycling Center
For those of you who want to help restore our “Brazoria County” sand dunes via the Dunes Day Project take your Christmas tree to the Stella Roberts Recycling Center, 5800 Magnolia Dr., Pearland, TX 77584. Trees can be unloaded into the trailer located at the entrance of the gate. Trees will be accepted from December 25, 2022 to January 14, 2023. *No appointment needed for Christmas Tree Drop-Off*
Option two: Manvel Location
Trees for the Dunes Project will also be accepted at the Brazoria County Precinct 2 Work Yard 7315 Corporate Dr, Manvel, TX during the yards operating hours, Monday-Thursday 7:30AM-5:30PM. This work yard is approximately 2 miles east of the SH288 and SH6 intersection. It is behind the Brazoria County Service Center (turn onto Corporate drive and pass the service center building). There is a cable link fence surrounding the work yard, with a gate that is unlocked during operating hours.
Whichever option you choose, you will be diverting your tree from the landfill! If you have used an artificial Christmas tree and are looking to dispose of it, bring it to the Recycling Center. Thanks for doing your part to help keep Pearland Beautiful and happy holidays!
