The holidays are officially over
It's official: the holidays are over.
Every year people bring their castoff Christmas trees to Ijams to have them recycled. The first one usually shows up the day after Christmas; the last one sometime after Groundhog Day. (Yes. Some folks hold onto that holiday spirit much longer than others.)
This morning Ed, Ben, Warren and Zach sent 351 Fraser firs and other assorted conifers through the shredder. The resulting mulch will be used in the landscaping at Ijams. And for now, the parking lot smells very evergreeny.
