The Recycle Depot will again be giving away trees for Earth Day. The public may visit the Depot this Saturday, April 22 from 8-12 noon to pick out up to five trees. The trees available are Norway spruce, tulip, black cherry, white oak, and gray dogwood. The selection includes larger shade trees as well as smaller ornamental trees.
“We have trees for all your landscaping needs,” said River Watson, Recycle Depot Education Coordinator and organizer of the event. “These are nice three-year-old seedlings purchased from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.”
The Marshall County Soil & Water District will also be on hand at the Depot to give away forty free black haw seedlings and to raffle off ten burr oak seedings.
The Recycle Depot is asking for a one-dollar donation for each trees to benefit Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization that supports tree planting in sub-Saharan Africa.
The Recycle Depot is Marshall County’s headquarters for recycling, household chemical and hazardous waste disposal, and environmental education. The Depot is located at 1900 Walter Glaub Drive, Plymouth, Indiana. For more information and hours, call (574) 935-8618 or visit the Depot’s website at www.myrecycledepot.org.
