The final day to drop off your Christmas tree for recycling is Thursday.
Then, come Saturday, Midlands residents can reap the benefits, when free mulch from the recycled trees is offered. Mulch may be picked up from the S.C. State Farmers Market and Seven Oaks Parks from 8:30 a.m. until it is gone. Mulch is given away on a first-come, first-served basis, and volunteers will be on hand to assist with loading.
For locations and hours to drop off trees, see www.keepthemidlandsbeautiful.org. Keep the Midlands Beautiful heads up the annual Grinding of the Greens effort.
