BRANSON, Mo. – The City of Branson is encouraging residents to recycle this holiday season.
While bows, ribbons and shiny or foil papers are not recyclable, most holiday waste can be recycled easily, including cardboard boxes, catalogues, greeting cards, tin cans, glass jars and bottles, aluminum cans and all kinds of plastic.
These items can be dropped off any time at the Branson Recycle Center, located across from the community center at 550 Compton Drive, and staff is available to assist you from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
A convenient 24/7 recycle trailer is also available in the parking lot of the Branson United Methodist Church on Highway 76.
In addition, those looking to recycle their real Christmas trees are encouraged to bring them to the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery below Table Rock Dam, from December 26th through January 15th. The trees will be used for wildlife habitat and trail maintenance.
The tree drop-off site is located near the boat ramp, and is available 24 hours. Look for the green “Tree Recycling” signs.
