Now that Christmas is over, the Town of Hilton Head Island is offering to take that tree off your hands.
The town is accepting undecorated Christmas trees through Jan. 15 through its Grinding of the Greens program, according to a town news release. Trees can be brought to the Coligny Beach parking lot on the South Forest Beach side and the Old Gullah Flea Market site, which is a designated area off U.S. 278 and Chamberlain Drive, according to the release.
Mulch from the dropped off Christmas trees will be available for free for pickup at the two designated sites until Jan. 30. The grinding service is being provided by Jones Brothers Tree Service.
Officials are asking residents not to pile Christmas trees with storm debris at either drop-off site or place Christmas trees in the right-of-way for pickup. There will be designated areas at each site for Christmas trees, according to the release.
