Does your trash overflow during holidays? What about that live Christmas tree?
Americans typically generate 25% more waste during the holidays, and most of that is recyclable. While bows, ribbons and shiny or foil papers are NOT recyclable, other holiday waste can easily be recycled.
Branson’s full service recycle center is located at 601 Compton Drive, across from the Branson Community Center. Recycling is available 24/7 there and your items can be dropped off anytime. A convenient 24/7 recycle trailer is also available in the Branson United Methodist Church parking lot on Highway 76.
Bring any of the following items to either location for processing:
