Pearland Texas Real Estate : December 2010

Recycle Your Christmas Tree!

Keep Pearland Beautiful

PLEASE Don’t send that Christmas Tree to the Landfill!

Keep Pearland Beautiful has two recycling great options for you!

 

First, In order to recycle your tree do not get a tree with flocking or add flocking to your tree. Please remove your tree from the stand, remove all tinsel, lights and ornaments.

Option One: For those of you who want to help restore the “Brazoria County” sand dunes you have to do this from December 28, 2010 to January 13, 2011: Bring your Christmas tree to the Stella Roberts Recycling Center, 5800 Magnolia Dr., Pearland, TX 77584 during the center's operating hours. The Center is open Monday to Friday from noon to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 1pm. The Center will be closed December 24, 25, 27, 2010 and January 3, 2011 for the holidays. Trees will also be accepted at the Brazoria County Precinct 2 Work Yard 7315 Corporate Dr, Manvel, TX Monday-Thursday 7:30AM-5:30PM. It is behind the Brazoria County Service Center (turn onto Corporate drive and pass the service center building).

Trees collected at these sites in Pearland and Manvel will be used for the Brazoria County Dune Project on January 15, 2011. At 9:00 a.m., volunteers will meet at Quintana Beach County Park and Stahlman Park, Surfside to rebuild, restore and strengthen our dune line against storm surges. There will be a lunch following the staking of the trees. For more information about where to drop off your tree call our offices (281-652-1659).

For more information about the Dunes Day project call James at (979) 864-1541.

Option Two: If you cannot transport your tree, you live in a single family dwelling and you are within Pearland City of limits,  your tree can be set out curbside on your Green Waste Day (second trash day of the week). These trees will go to a commercial composting facility or chopped up for mulch at the facility along with the rest of your green waste.

 

These two options are a great way to help reduce landfill space AND have a postive effect on our enviorment!

For more information, please contact Keep Pearland Beautiful at 281-652-1659.
