EL PASO - Once the holiday season is over, you can recycle your Christmas tree instead of throwing it away.
The City of El Paso is collecting live trees and turning them into mulch and wood chips.
Starting Dec. 28, citizens can dispose of their live Christmas trees by taking them to any of the department’s five Citizen Collection Stations. This free service will be available through Jan. 15. The stations are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. They are located at:
121 Atlantic (off Doniphan)
2492 Harrison @ Alabama
9000 Escobar @ Zaragosa
4501 Hondo Pass
Mulch and wood chips will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to the public starting on Jan. 4 at the Atlantic, Hondo Pass and Escobar locations.
