Now that the gifts are open, the food is eaten and the family has gone back home, there’s still the daunting task of taking down the Christmas tree. And if you have a live tree, what do you do with it?
If you haven’t already, 2010 is the year to go green, so recycle your live Christmas tree December 28-January 15. And if you show proof of a Dallas address, you can get free mulch for your garden (be sure to bring your own containers and shovels).
Be sure to remove all tinsel, ornaments, stands, lights and nails from the tree before bringing to the recycling center.
Tree recycling and mulch are available from 9 am to 4 pm at:
McCommas Bluff Landfill
5100 Youngblood Road (Monday-Saturday)
Flag Pole Hill
Northwest Highway at Buckner Blvd. (Monday-Sunday)
Fair Oaks Transfer Station
