Plea from Christmas trees: ‘Recycle me’

In the weeks after Christmas, it's no surprise that garbage disposal tends to increase, as Canadians toss out torn-up wrapping paper, styrofoam and cardboard boxes that covered their gifts. But something else that's often found amidst trash in the weeks after the holiday are Christmas trees.

As a result, Waste Management Canada has made an appeal to Canadians to dispose of these holiday staples properly, releasing "A plea from your Christmas tree."

"Millions of Canadians will have a Christmas tree this year, but many don't recognize that I and thousands of my fellow tree friends can be recycled and put to greater use," the WM Canada Christmas tree said. "To my relief and that of thousands of natural Christmas trees across the country, there are ways we can be re-used long after the holiday season has come and gone."

One of the best ways, according to the tree, is to recycle them, as many communities have tree mulching programs. These are then used for landscaping tasks, serving as a source of garden mulch.

Due to the mess real Christmas trees often leave, many Canadians find artificial trees more convenient. These serve as ideal items that can be placed in storage, along with other holiday decorations.
