If your once glorious Christmas tree is starting to look a little worse for wear, Hamilton County is ready to help you recycle. Three recycling sites open Saturday. They'll accept trees and other holiday greenery.
Details from Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District:
Saturday, January 4 and January 11, 2014 from noon–3:00 pm, sites will be open to receive holiday greenery.
Mariemont, Wyoming and Montgomery are Hamilton County's top three recycling neighborhoods.
The Recycling and Solid Waste District reports the average household recycled 250 pounds in 2012. That's 14 percent of all waste generated.
A recent study suggests 40 percent of what Hamilton County sends to the landfill could be diverted by recycling.
Rounding out the top ten recycling communities are Terrace Park, Madeira, Blue Ash, Indian Hill, Glendale, Loveland and Evendale.
Now that spring is here, yard work is certain to follow.
