Recycle your holiday tree

Recycle Your Holiday Evergreen

After the holidays, donate your used evergreen to Broward County's Chip-a-Tree program. The free program requires residents to remove all decorations from their holiday trees (decorated trees are not accepted), then bring the trees to a participating park, where they are chipped and used for landscaping throughout the park system. The two parks closest to Margate are Fern Forest (201 Lyons Road, South) and Tradewinds Park (3600 W. Sample Road). There is a limit of two trees per vehicle, artificial trees are not accepted, and no commercial vehicles or garbage trucks are allowed. Park entry is FREE for recyclers. For more information, visit broward.org.
