Texas Disposal Systems recycles Christmas tree to prevent wildfires

Austin (KXAN) “The longer the Christmas trees stay in our homes, the higher the risk of fire.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, a third of US house fires involving Christmas trees occur in January.

For this reason, a garbage collection company in Central Texas is giving people the opportunity to recycle their trees.

Texas Disposal Systems offers people the opportunity to save their homes from potential danger while also helping the environment.

TDS says that throwing trees in the trash still puts them at risk of fire, so it’s much better to turn them into mulch.

This is part of TDS’ free Christmas tree recycling program, which will run until the end of the month.

The garbage collection company collects loose Christmas trees, holly trees, pumpkins and other holiday decorations.

This is done in order to avoid fire from dried old trees and decorations.

“Recycling your Christmas trees and turning them into compost and mulch for later use is a much safer and more sustainable way to ensure they don’t end up in the trash,” Texas Disposal Systems Senior Marketing Communications Specialist. Katie Fordyce said.

TDS asks people not to drop flocked trees, lanterns, decorations, or metal.

Otherwise, they may charge you a $55 pollution fee.

Once the trees and decorations have been transformed, the compost and mulch will be available for purchase at Garden-Ville stores throughout central Texas.

Sites for collecting Christmas trees:

All collection points are open from 27 December to 31 January.
