Christmas Tree Recycling at CARRS is NOT the place for tree or wood waste other than INDOOR CHRISTMAS TREES.
The recent wind storms have led to a large number of downed trees and folks are considering where to take the debris. There are options but the Christmas Tree Recycling program at the CARRS/Safeway stores is not one of them. Store parking lots and the Christmas Tree Recycling program cannot handle any tree or wood debris other than indoor Christmas Trees.
ALPAR would like to remind everyone to properly dispose of wind-fallen trees.
Here’s some suggestions:
* Keep debris on site until the ANCHORAGE WOODLOT opens in May.
*Take tree debris to the ANCHORAGE REGIONAL LANDFILL on HIland Dr. The Central Transfer Station takes pickup size loads of brush that are cut into eight foot lengths or shorter. Larger loads of brush and land clearing waste are accepted at the landfill. Regular rates apply.
*Use for firewood or give away to friends and family.
*Call a tree service for a bid to chip material on site and haul away.
Remember to always secure your load!
Thank you for recycling it right! (And making ALPAR’s Christmas and New Year’s bright!)
