NEW MARKET – As a service to the community and in response to popular demand, Appalachian Electric Cooperative (AEC) will again be hosting a tree recycling drop-off location for local residents.
From December 26 through January 5, AEC will accept live Christmas trees at its location in New Market.
Trees may be dropped off in a designated area (marked off with orange cones and identified with signage) of the lower west parking lot. Co-op crews will recycle the trees into mulch. No artificial trees will be accepted, and all trees must be free of ornaments, lights and other decorations. Trees may be dropped off 24-hours-per-day during the 11-day event.
For more information, contact AEC’s Member Services Department at (865) 475-2032, extension 1880.
