DOVER, Del.- Delawareans are encouraged to give their recycling spirit a boost after the holiday season by delivering their Christmas trees to one of many yard waste recycling facilities located throughout the state.

According to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, many of the facilities will accept the trees for free; they are listed below. DNREC is also reminding state residents that Christmas trees are no longer accepted for recycling at any Delaware State Park locations. 

DNREC said Christmas trees will be accepted for recycling from Dec. 26 to Jan. 26, 2013, from families only at the facilities listed below. Trees will not be accepted from commercial haulers or tree vendors without prior approval. Artificial decorations, including hooks, wire, tinsel and ornaments, as well as wood and metal tree stands, must be removed from all trees before dropping them off for recycling.

Many entities also collect Christmas trees, including various waste haulers and landscapers. Your regular trash hauler may provide one-time collection for Christmas trees in January. For a partial listing of entities that collect Christmas trees and other yard waste go to: www.dnrec.delaware.gov/yardwaste and click on "Yard waste collection options."

Christmas trees, stripped of all decorations and detached from tree stands, can be dropped off by Delaware residents for free at any of the following locations:
