Recycle in the holiday spirit
Your Christmas tree can serve another useful purpose as mulch for trees and shrubs in your backyard and neighborhood. South Suburban Parks and Recreation will recycle Christmas trees from December 26 through January 10.
Residents can dispose of Christmas trees at the Willow Spring Service Center, 7100 South Holly Street, Centennial. Trees will also be accepted at Cornerstone Park parking area, enter from Windermere Street south of Belleview Avenue in Littleton. All lights, ornaments, garland, tinsel and stands must first be removed. Flocked trees, leaves, branches or other refuse will not be accepted at the recycling sites.
During the recycling effort, trees will be mulched and free mulch will be available shortly after the recycling process begins. Residents can obtain mulch Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at each of the two sites.
