Christmas Tree Chipping Program will return Winter 2013
The Christmas Tree Recycling Program has closed for the season.
The Christmas Tree Recycling service, a collaborative program between IVGID Waste Not and the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District, helps save our natural resources, landfill space and protects the clarity of Lake Tahoe. All trees dropped off at Preston Field were chipped and used as mulch for local erosion control projects. The program produces an average of 14 tons a year in recycled mulch. See you next year!
