Christmas trees to be recycled at two sites


Non-artificial Christmas trees can be recycled at two sites in San Angelo after the holiday.

From Tuesday, Dec. 26, through Sunday, Jan. 7, trees can be taken to the SAFE Recycling Center, 702 Warehouse Road, or to Foster Communications Coliseum parking lot, 50 E. 43rd St. Trees can be dropped off any time inside a marked area at each site. The City will run the trees through a chipper.

Trees must have all ornaments and decorations removed to prevent damage to the chippers.

Mulch from the chippers is available for free at the City’s landfill, 3002 Old Ballinger Highway. The landfill is open 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays.
