Broome County to turn Christmas trees into compost for community use

first_img“If theres any kind of chemicals or paint on your trees we can’t take those because it will contaminate the compost and obviously we can’t take your fake trees just your regular run of the mill pine trees,” said Brewer. That compost will then be made available to the community just in time for the spring growing season. From there the county will take those dead trees and break them down, turning them into compost. “The compost will be available to all residents in the Spring,” Brewer said. “It’s meant for just residential purposes and you can come pick it up any time in the spring,” said Brewer. “There’s two drop offs for the county,” said Jessica Brewer, Materials Recovery Manager for Broome County. “You can come to the landfill directly and we have a roll off bin or you can take it to Grippen Park” Brewer said. Brewer also says to make sure your tree hasn’t been treated with chemicals, and is real, before dropping it off. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — The Broome County Division of Solid Waste Management is happy to take your Christmas Tree off your hands. Brewer says the county asks that you remove all decorations before dropping the tree off. The county will be accepting trees until the end of Januarylast_img read more
