    New Christmas tree recycling program

    By: Bill Hangley

    The last of the holiday wrappings, wreaths, and Christmas trees are heading to the curb. Many communities have recycling programs for the greenery. Philadelphia’s Christmas tree recycling program starts today and runs through Saturday January 17. This is also the start of weekly recycling, city-wide. WHYY’s Bill Hangley reports.
