Start 2019 off right with recycling! We’ll take those holiday cards and trees off your hands and make sure they don’t end up in the landfill.
RECYCLE YOUR CHRISTMAS CARDS:
You can bring in your old Christmas cards to the Pala Administration Lobby. There’s a red wrapped box by the downstairs front desk where you can drop off your cards. We donate all cards to the children of St. Jude’s Ranch for Children for arts and crafts.
Pala Environmental Department will remove any writing/names/information from each card before sending them, so you do not have to worry about privacy (or you can do so before dropping off your cards).
Where: Pala Administration Lobby; Pala Environmental Department Office
When: between now & the end of January
RECYCLE YOUR USED GIFT CARDS (leftover after you use your Christmas presents):
After you use up all of those Christmas gift cards you received this holiday season, remember that they can be recycled. This also includes old library/ID cards, etc.
Where: Pala Environmental Dept.
RECYCLE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREES:
If you live on the reservation, you can recycle your Christmas trees for free by leaving them out on trash days (next to your trash cans) or bringing them to the Pala Transfer Station.
Tribal Services will collect Christmas trees during regular pick-up times for the first 2 weeks of January.
Where: Pala Transfer Station or curbside, next to your trash cans
When: between now & the middle of January
If you do not live in Pala, check this website for the best way to recycle your trees.
