Holiday Tree Recycling
The city of Woodbury's contracted compost site will be open on two Saturdays for the disposal of holiday trees and wreaths.
• Saturday, Jan. 9, 2010, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
• Saturday, Jan. 16, 2010, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
In addition, all other yard waste will be accepted on these dates.
Before deliving a tree or wreath, the city is asking residents to remove all foreign matter from the tree, including lights, wire tinsel, ornaments, plastic bags, nails, tree stands, etc.
Flocked trees and wreaths are also not recyclable. Any trees or wreaths not meeting these conditions will be rejected, as they represent a safety hazard to both the operator and the chipping machinery.
There is a $6 charge per tree and $5 charge per wreath.
The compost site is located at 4600 Cottage Grove Drive, south of Bailey Road. The site is operated by Composting Concepts, Inc. under an agreement approved by the Woodbury City Council in October 2001. Questions about the compost site should be directed to Composting Concepts at (651) 436-1213.
