Christmas tree disposal
FROM BAY COUNTY:
Are you looking for an easy, environmentally friendly method of disposing of this year’s Christmas tree?
Your Christmas tree can be cleanly and efficiently converted into household electricity. From December 26 through January 15, Bay County Residents can drop their Christmas trees off for processing at no charge at the following facilities:
- Sherman Avenue Recreational Complex, 2117 Sherman Ave., Panama City
- H.G. Harders Park, 7900 John Pitts Road, Bayou George
- Steelfield Road Landfill, 11411 Landfill Road, Panama City Beach
- Bay County Waste-to-Energy Facility, 6510 Bay Line Drive, Panama City
Please Note: Only residential drop offs at the park locations. Large quantities from businesses will only be accepted at the Steelfield Road Landfill or Bay County Waste-to-Energy Facility. The trees collected at these drop off locations will be used as fuel at the Bay County Waste-to-Energy Facility.
Did you know that:
- Waste-to-Energy facilities use waste products for fuel, such as household garbage and yard debris. This helps reduce our demand for fossil fuels and our dependence on foreign oil.
- The Waste-to-Energy facility converts household garbage and other waste into enough electricity each year to power approximately 5,500 average size residences.
- The Waste-to-Energy facility is an ecologically friendly process that produces very little atmospheric emissions, far less greenhouse gases than a conventional landfill and drastically reduces the amount of waste that we landfill each year.
