Riverside Christmas trees recycled into fish homes
A story from the Sacramento Bee shows how recycling Christmas trees can help create fish refuges.
RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- A Riverside County program will recycle Christmas trees into fish habitats instead of tossing them into landfills, where space is valuable and limited.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise ( http://bit.ly/tbRnUg) has published a list of recycling centers where trees can be dropped off for free during two weeks after Christmas.
The state department of fish and game will use the conifers in local lakes and waterways to create a protective habitat for small fish, so they aren't overfished by larger predators.
To prepare a tree for recycling, decorations, tinsels, lights and tree stands must be removed.
Flocked trees cannot be recycled.
