In the tradition of regifting, Summerlin residents are encouraged to recycle their real Christmas trees giving back to Mother Nature once the holidays are over. In partnership with Springs Preserve, the UNLV Rebel Recycling Program and other local conservation organizations, the annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program returns Dec. 26-Jan. 15.
Tom Warden, , senior vice president of community and government relations for Summerlin stated “Summerlin’s participation in this program is a natural fit for our community given our history working in concert with environmental organizations to conserve and protect the natural environment. By design, our master-planned community is dedicated to creating more sustainable neighborhoods “
There are two locations in Summerlin where residents can drop off their real Christmas trees through Jan. 15; the lot adjacent RC Willey Home Furnishings, 3850 S. Town Center Drive just south of the 215 Beltway, and the Las Vegas Ballpark South parking lot in Downtown Summerlin on Pavilion Center Drive. Look for Christmas Tree Recycling signage at both locations.
For those that live in the northern villages of Summerlin you may want a drop off point just outside of the master-planned community, at nearby Bruce Trent Park on Vegas Drive. All locations are open 24 hours.
Throughout the valley, there are more than 30 locations accepting trees through Jan. 15. There is no cost to drop off trees, but all non-organic objects such as lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments and nails must be removed before dropping off trees. Artificial trees and real trees flocked with decorative chemical compounds cannot be recycled.
The real trees will be chipped into organic mulch and used in public gardens and parks across the valley to help conserve soil moisture and keep plants healthy
Since the Christmas Tree Recycling Program started tracking trees in 2011, more than 260,000 trees have been diverted from the landfill, creating more than 2,265 tons of mulch used for landscaping projects and dust control throughout our valley.
