• Myrtle Grove Middle School, 901 Piner Rd.
• Ogden Park (near the baseball fields), 225 Ogden Park Drive
• New Hanover County Landfill, 5210 US Highway 421 North
This program will continue through the month of January with the last pickup being Tuesday, Feb. 4.
Christmas Tree recycling is funded and coordinated by New Hanover County Environmental Management, with support from the City of Wilmington's Sanitation department.
