Does your trash overflow during Christmas? 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 550 Compton Drive, across from the Branson Community Center. Recycling is available 24/7 there and your items can be dropped off anytime. Staff can assist you from 7-2, Monday through Saturday. A convenient 24/7 recycle trailer is also available in the Branson United Methodist Church parking lot on Highway 76 for recycling anytime.

Christmas Tree Recycling: Real Christmas trees may be recycled through Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery just below Table Rock Dam, from December 26 to January 15th. The trees will be used for wildlife habitat and trail maintenance.
Hansen’s Tree Service (417-272-8733) in Reeds Spring also provides a free Christmas tree disposal site. Another option for landowners is to place your old Christmas tree in your pond for fish habitat.
