Christmas tree recycling is on

LIHUE — County officials are suggesting people recycle Christmas trees.

“We encourage residents and businesses to do their part to recycle Christmas trees and divert green waste from the landfill,” said Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho, Jr. “Recycled Christmas trees generate compost to fertilize other trees and plants.”

Trees are being accepted for recycling daily, except on holidays, at the green waste drop-off areas of the Hanapepe, Kapaa and Lihue refuse transfer stations, 7:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and the Kekaha Landfill, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at Kauai Nursery and Landscaping in Puhi.
