Recycle Your Christmas Tree
The city will collect Christmas trees and put them to good use as mulch for its parks and roadsides. Residents in single family homes inside the city limits can put their Christmas trees at the curb for pickup during the regular city brush collection. All lights, decorations, stands and nails must be removed from trees. Please be aware that it may take several weeks to collect all the trees. People who live in apartments, who live outside the city limits or who want to dispose of their trees quickly can take them to drop-off locations through Jan. 31. READ MORE
