Turn your Christmas tree to mulch with Grinding of the Greens

Beaufort County residents have a chance to help the environment and make good use of their old Christmas trees by taking part in the annual Grinding of the Greens project. With the help of the Keep Beaufort County Beautiful and the Beaufort County Solid Waste Recycling, owners can return their Christmas trees to the land as mulch. This process also saves room at the landfill.

There will be four locations for Christmas tree disposal north of the Broad River beginning December 26, 2012. Residents can drop off their trees day or night at one of the following locations.

Lady’s Island – Sea Island Parkway next to Huddle House

Lady’s Island – Pleasant Point Road at the Family Tree Christmas Tree Farm

Beaufort – Beaufort Plaza near the Plaza Theaters

Port Royal – The Naval Heritage Park off Ribaut Road
