Recycling live Christmas trees saves valuable landfill space. Beaufort County residents are encouraged to bring live Christmas trees to any County Convenience Center during normal Center hours. Trees should be placed in the yard waste bins.
• Please make sure all ornaments, lights, and other decorations are removed from the trees prior to recycling them. Residents should not take trees to the old locations in Lady’s Island or Bluffton, as doing so will be considered illegal dumping.
• In anticipation of increased amounts of post-holiday waste and as a courtesy to other County residents, please remember to flatten all cardboard boxes before placing them in the appropriate dumpsters.
• Bubble wrap and air pillows can be recycled in the Plastic Bag & Film Collection bins at the Bluffton, Hilton Head, Shanklin and St. Helena Convenience Centers.
• Remember too, after the feast, recycle the grease. For more information about recycling household grease and other accepted recyclables at the Convenience Centers click here.
