Holiday Tree Recycling results are in!
The Incline Village/Crystal Bay Holiday Tree Chipping Program, now in its 23rd year, is a long-standing example of community collaboration. This year the drop-off site at Preston Field opened on Dec. 21, 2018 and closed Jan. 28, 2019. Program partners include Waste Not providing outreach and site setup/teardown, NLTFPD chipping all the trees, IVGID Pipeline supporting snow removal and transport of chips, IVGID Parks Dept. providing site assistance and chip-drop logistics, and Waste Management offering a curbside collection week for the trees. (Jan. 7-11. 2019). Chips are used erosion control projects on IVGID property.
A total of 979 trees were chipped by the NLTFPD. The project resulted in filling four, 20 yard bins, for an estimated 20 ton of wood chips.
Thank you to our community for your holiday tree recycling efforts!
