We are a not-for-profit facility that turns local yard debris such as grass clippings, brush and plant cuttings into useful landscaping products for the home and garden. All of our mulches and composts are 100% natural with no additives and are for sale to residents, landscapers, nurseries and other businesses.
Christmas Tree Collection 2015
The cities of Champaign and Urbana provide curbside Christmas tree pick-up for residents. City residents may participate by placing their tree within four feet of the curb by 6 a.m. on their scheduled collection day. Trees with stands, decorations, tinsel, lights, artificial snow-frost, plastic bags and any other material that makes the tree non-recyclable will not be collected.
Champaign County residents may drop off their Christmas trees at LRC for free until May 2016.
Collected trees are recycled into acidifier mulch, which is ideal for acid-loving plants and various conifers.
