Recycle those Christmas trees

Ponca City Now - December 16, 2014 12:55 pm

What do you do with that Christmas tree once your Holiday is over?

Well, how about bringing it to the Christmas tree recycling area. This unique recycling opportunity is located across the street from the drop-off Recycling Center located on west Prospect Avenue.

Starting Dec. 22, the Christmas tree recycling area will be open for the drop-off of Christmas trees.

On Jan. 16, 2015 we will close the Christmas tree recycling area.

After the area is closed, the old Christmas trees will be turned into mulch for gardening and landscape usage. The mulch will be available free to the public, and those interested will need to bring their own shovels and containers to transport the mulch. The mulch will be available from Jan. 23 until it is gone.

Please be sure and remove all lights and ornaments from the Christmas trees before bringing them to the Christmas Tree Recycling area.
