Kauai Residents Urged to Recycle Christmas Trees

LIHUE, Kauai  (KHNL) -- Kauai county officials want everyone to recycle their Christmas trees.

Residents can take their trees to the Hanalei, Hanapepe, Kapaa and Lihue refuse transfer stations from 7:15 AM to 5:15 PM, excluding holidays and the Kekaha Landfill from 7 AM to 5 PM.

A drop-off point for trees is also located outside the main entrance to Kauai Nursery and Landscaping on Kaumualii Highway in Puhi seven days a week.

All trees must be free of flocking, tinsel and ornaments when they are brought to the recycling centers.
