The York County Solid Waste Authority is conducting a free Christmas tree recycling program for all York County residents.  The program starts now and continues through January 31, 2016.  Residents may bring their trees to the Authority’s Yard Waste Transfer Facility in Manchester Township seven days a week during daylight hours.  In addition to the Authority’s collection site, the following businesses are accepting Christmas trees: Spring Valley Mulch in Dover, 292-3476; H & H General Excavating in Spring Grove, 225-4669 and Mighty Oak Mulch in Wrightsville, 244-3099.  Please call these locations for hours and directions. Please note: Trees are no longer accepted at Kain County Park.

There is no fee to residents for this program. PLEASE REMOVE: ornaments, tinsel, lights and protective bags from your tree.   Many municipalities now offer curbside Christmas tree collection for their residents.  Call your municipal office to see if your municipality offers a curbside collection program.  Dedicated loads of Christmas trees collected in municipal programs will be accepted at no charge during regular business hours at the Authority’s Yard Waste Transfer Facility.  Trees collected will be shipped off site to an end user.
