Bringing life anew from holiday waste




Bobby Mangrum trims limbs from one of the many Christmas trees that Everett Community College has received since the end of the holiday season to prepare them to size to be put into a shredder for mulch.
A cost-free disposal of Christmas trees gives the college valuable wood chips that is used as mulch around flower gardens and other vegetation throughout the campus. Trees can be dropped off between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays. Trees must be free of all decorations, tinsel and any other non-biodegradable materials. For more information on EvCC's program, call 425-388-9512. The City of Monroe is
also taking trees for free, story here.
