You can recycle your Christmas tree into nutrient-rich mulch for free by bringing it to one of 20 drop-off locations throughout the city.

The tree recycling program is available Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 5-6, and again next weekend, Jan. 12-13, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition, two locations -- the Bitters and Nelson Gardens Brush Recycling Centers -- will accept Christmas trees during regular operating hours throughout the month of January.

Mulch will be available for free at all 20 locations, while supplies last.
