Christmas Tree Pickup and Dropoffs

For your information.

CHRISTMAS CLEANUP


Broward offers tree pickup and recycling

BY AMY SHERMAN

Broward County residents can recycle their Christmas trees at some local parks.

Or, for residents who don't want to haul the tree that far, most cities will pick it up at the curb.

The county turns the old Christmas trees into mulch to be used in parks, flower beds, walkways and horse trails. Last year, the county recycled nearly 17,500 trees into 219 tons of mulch.

''It's a huge amount,'' said Bob Harbin, director of the county parks.

Although Broward County has offered the Chip-a-Tree program for 15 years, this is the first time that officials have paired it with an ongoing program to replant trees in Broward. At a few of the tree recycling sites, county residents can pick up a new tree while supplies last through Replant Broward.

Launched about four years ago, Replant Broward is a reforestation project implemented by the Broward County League of Cities in response to the loss of more than 132,000 trees due to citrus canker. So far, more than 109,000 trees have been distributed to more than 30,000 homeowners.

It's not necessary to drop off an old tree to get a new tree through Replant Broward.

Broward residents are limited to dropping off two trees per vehicle, and artificial trees are not accepted.

Trees can be recycled at designated parks between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily through Jan. 16. Expect to pay a park entrance fee of $1 per person. For more information call 954-357-8100.

Replant Broward trees can be picked up at the following locations, where residents can also drop off old Christmas trees:

C.B. Smith Park, 900 N. Flamingo Road, Pembroke Pines

Markham Park, 16001 W. State Road 84, Sunrise

Plantation Heritage Park, 1100 S. Fig Tree Lane, Plantation

T.Y. Park, 3300 N. Park Road, Hollywood

West Lake Park/Anne Kolb Nature Center, 751 Sheridan St., Hollywood

Trees can also be dropped off at:

Brian Piccolo Park, 9501 Sheridan St., Cooper City

Delevoe Park, 2520 NW Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale

Easterlin Park, 1000 NW 38th St., Oakland Park

Fern Forest Nature Center, 201 Lyons Road S., Coconut Creek

McTyre Park, 3501 SW 56th Ave., Pembroke Park

Quiet Waters Park, 401 S. Powerline Road, Deerfield Beach

Snake Warrior's Island, 3601 SW 62nd Ave., Miramar

Tradewinds Park, 3600 W. Sample Road, Coconut Creek

I found out that in Miramar, they won't start the pickup until January 6. They could have advertised that....
