Mesquite, Texas – December 18, 2018 – Start the New Year by going green with your live Christmas tree. Your tree can serve others long after it has left your living room. Live Christmas trees are biodegradable, which means they are easily reused or recycled for mulch and other purposes. Follow these guidelines in preparing your tree for recycling.
- Remove all stands, lights, tinsel and ornaments.
- Place your tree out for collection (curb or alley) starting the first Wednesday after Christmas, Dec. 26, continuing every scheduled Wednesday brush day.
- Drop off your tree at the City’s Convenience Center, 3550 Lawson Road.
- Leave the tree in its natural state for recycling. Do not place it in a plastic bag.
