Christmas trees get recycled for parks

Douglas County Parks and Recreation is offering a Christmas tree recycling program to Nevada residents. The Parks Division chipped just over 3,000 trees last year, with the majority of those chips going toward erosion control at Kahle Community Park. Help reduce the impact on the landfill space and participate in this community-wide program.

Trees may be dropped off through Jan. 31 at Zephyr Cove Park on Warrior Way or Kahle Community Park, Kingsbury Grade and Highway 50.

To protect workers and equipment remove tinsel, lights, nails and stands from trees before dropping them off. Flocked trees will not be accepted because they will gum up the chippers.

For more information contact Douglas County Parks and Recreation at (775) 782-9835.
