Pinellas County offers Christmas tree recycling
Pinellas County offers Christmas tree recycling

Gulfport, Florida -- Pinellas County Communications tells us to recycle your Christmas tree so it can be processed into useful mulch. However, please remember to remove all decorations, including hooks, garland, tinsel and lights. 

Keep the tree loose, not in a bag or trash can. If you live in an apartment or condo, place your tree near the dumpster, without blocking access to it.
