Real, fresh cut Christmas trees can be recycled for mulch.  Mulched trees are used for playgrounds, beautification projects, and individual yards.  These are all better options than sending trees to our rapidly filling landfills. Plan to take your Christmas tree to one of the conveniently located drop off sites throughout Tazewell County.

 Christmas trees may be dropped off from December 26, 2016 until January 13, 2017, at any of the following Tazewell County tree mulching sites:

Armington – Across the street from Village Hall

Creve Coeur – Village Hall, 101 N Thorncrest
