Free Christmas tree recycling will begin December 26 and run through January 31 for New Hanover County residents. Real trees and wreaths can be dropped off at one of three locations in New Hanover County during daylight hours: Home Depot in Monkey Junction, Home Depot on Eastwood Road, or the NHC Landfill.
Trees and wreaths must have all lights, ornaments, stands, and tinsel removed, and artificial trees cannot be accepted. Residents are asked to stack the trees neatly as space is limited and demand is expected to be high.
This service is a partnership of New Hanover County Environmental Management, the City of Wilmington Sanitation Department, and Home Depot. Call 910-798-4400 for more information.
