The pile of Christmas trees at each of the four drop off centers in New Hanover County grew over the weekend. By Sunday afternoon dozens of trees were at each of the sites. “I'm a clean freak, so as soon as I can take it down and clean up I’m ready for the New Year, but my parents, they keep theirs up well after the New Year so I guess it varies for different people,” Lynette Racco said. If you choose to keep your tree around the house a little bit longer, you still have plenty of time to recycle it. In Bladen County, you can put your tree in the yard waste cans at any solid waste collection centers. The Brunswick County Landfill in Supply will accept trees through January 31. In Columbus County, drop trees in the leaf and limb containers at any convenience center. There are four tree recycling drop off locations in New Hanover County. Myrtle Grove Middle School on Piner Road, American Property Specialists at 606 Sunnyvale Drive, Smith Creek Park on Harris off Gordon Road, and the New Hanover County Landfill on Highway 421 North. Those sites will accept trees through February 3. And in Pender County, the convenience centers in Burgaw, Hampstead, Rocky Point and Willard will accept trees starting Monday through January 11.
