Discarded Christmas Tree Recycling Information Outer Banks - 2022

Outer Banks Recycled Christmas Tree

The holiday season is over so so what do you do with your used Christmas Tree this year?

We hope you were able to get out and enjoy some of the amazingly festive holiday events along the Outer Banks over the past few weeks.

Residents of Dare County and its six towns are reminded that there are different policies governing the disposal of Christmas trees as the holidays draw to a close. Before the tree may be discarded, all ornaments, lights, ribbons, and decorations must be removed.

In the past years, there have been different volunteers and businesses that have stepped up and helped collect trees for beach nourishment events in the Outer Banks. With a bigger Beach Nourishment project in the works for 2022 in the Nags Head, NC area it is uncertain if these volunteers will be participating again this year.

If you are uncertain of what to do with your real Christmas trees this year please contact the town government office where you live to ask about collection dates and times in your area. You can find some phone numbers below to help expedite your search now.
