Christmas tree recycling at the Aqua Center

Christmas trees can be dropped off at the Aqua Center through January.

If you're looking to dispose of your Christmas tree, the Park Forest Aqua Center is a drop-off site, now through Jan. 31.

The north side of the parking lot of the Aqua Center is sectioned off where residents should look to drop their trees.

Residents are asked to remove any tree decorations prior to drop-off.

Trees that are picked-up with your regular garbage go directly into a landfill. When they breakdown there, they release the second most prevalent greenhouse gas, methane, which harms the environment. Park Forest is looking to offer a more sustainable solution for Christmas tree disposal. By dropping off your Christmas tree at the Aqua Center, trees will be chipped to be reused in landscapes or, at minimum, will be added to yard waste compost. 

The Park Forest Aqua Center is located at 30 N. Orchard Drive.
