Greensboro, NC - All of the holiday decorations and Christmas trees are starting to come down across the Triad, and this means lots and lots of trash and waste.
Between Thanksgiving and New Years, Americans dispose of nearly one million extra tons of waste, and most of this waste can be recycled.
Guilford County Residents can recycle their Christmas trees at three different Triad locations:
- Guilford County Prison Farm, 7315 Howerton Road, Gibsonville. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. From Highway 61, take County Farm Road then turn right onto Howerton Road. The drop-off point is ¼ mile on the right. (Call 641-2630 for more information.)
- Piedmont Triad Farmers' Market, off I-40 at Sandy Ridge Road. Open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week. (Call 605-9157 for more information.)
- Tabernacle United Methodist Church, behind the ball field at the corner of Woody Mill and Methodist Roads. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In addition to Christmas trees, electronics, appliances and paper products can all be recycled.
