January 11, 2014; 8:00 A.M.
After the holidays rather than sending your tree to the landfill, put it to good use. PWC will partner with the City of Fayetteville, Duke Progress Energy, and the Garden in a Christmas Tree Recycling Program known as Grinding of the Greens. Check the local newspapers for curb side pick-up information or drop off your tree at the Garden’s fire tower. Volunteers will grind the trees into mulch for use at the Garden. Recycling your Christmas tree is a “green” gift that the Garden truly appreciates.
