Christmas in Philadelphia is once again eco-friendly this year, with a tree-cycling program running through Saturday, January 14.
Check out all the details on the city-wide program in our previous post.
But if you live in or are close to University City, head there this Saturday, January 7 for a recycling double-whammy: UCD is running a recycling event for both Christmas trees and electronics from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in Clark Park.
Turn your tree into woodchips instead of landfill, the mulch from which will be used for neighborhood parks and gardens.
Also bring by any household electronics (anything with a plug!) for proper disposal of potentially environmentally harmful materials.
The event is sponsored by UCD and eForce Compliance, the city’s first R2 certified e-waste recycler.
Also: UCD needs a few volunteers to help out. If you can volunteer for a few hours on January 7, contact UC Green at (215) 573-4684.
UCD Christmas Tree and Electronics Recycling
