Christmas Tree Recycling Sites

-Residents Urged to Recycle Materials Year Round-

 Santa Rosa County residents are urged to start the New Year “green” by recycling their live Christmas trees. Trees dropped off by Tuesday, January 31 at the five recycling areas around the county will be chipped and offered as free mulch at Clean Community System in Milton at a later date to be announced.

When dropping off trees, please place the trees in the designated area identified by signage. Do not place trees in front of the recycling containers. Trees can be disposed at (Maps available online at ):

  •  Clean Community System on Park Avenue
  • Quintette Recycle Area at the Five Points Intersection
  • Pace Patriot Boulevard next to Pace Volunteer Fire Department
  • Tiger Point recreation area in Gulf Breeze, east of Walmart
  • Jay Transfer Station, on Transfer Station Road

With more recycling choices available in Santa Rosa County than ever before, recycling is an easy New Years resolution to make for 2012. Citizens can recycle glass, metal, plastic containers, paper and cardboard with curbside collections by their garbage collection service, taking items to one of the 26 recycling drop off sites located throughout the county, or hauling the items to the Central Landfill or Gulf Breeze and Jay transfer stations.

Residents are also reminded that recycle areas are not disposal areas for furniture or household garbage that is not sorted, recyclable material.   Please do not dispose of carpet, furniture, toilets, sinks, vinyl flooring, or wicker furniture in the recycle bins. Not only can people be fined for illegal dumping, it can cause the site to be closed or relocated, which can be a great inconvenience to those that are using the site as intended.   A list of all Santa Rosa County recycling points and acceptable materials can also be found on the county’s website at: .
