Recycle Your Tree At Margate Park

Want to put that Christmas tree to good use?  You'll have to hang onto it a while, but the City of Chicago offers tree recycling beginning January 7th at locations around the city, including Margate Park (4921 N Marine).

"From Saturday, January 7, 2012 through Friday, January 20, 2012, Chicago residents be be able to drop off their used live holiday trees at one of 23 unmanned locations citywide. Trees will be mulched so that they can be reused as a fragrant mulch/ground cover on City landscaping projects or by residents in their backyard gardens. This will keep trees from being landfilled and allow an environmentally friendly reuse. A limited amount of mulch will be left at these sites for pick-up by residents beginning on Friday January 13th. We ask residents to remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel and accessories before they leave us their trees. These items can damage our machinery and will prevent reuse."
