  • St. Petersburg Offers to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

When you're ready to wrap up the holiday season, dispose of your Christmas tree by placing it at the curb on your weekly refuse collection day.

Trying to figure out what to do with leftover Christmas Trees?

Another option to ditch your tree is at Mulchfest with the city parks department. A dead Christmas tree should be good to burn in a monitored outdoor fire pit, though.

Beginning Tuesday, trees are being accepted at more than 30 drop-off locations from Boulder City to Summerlin, and Southern Highlands to North Las Vegas. Anyone wishing to obtain a list of locations where the trees will be available should contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project office after January 11.

"All trees must be free of all decorations, lights, stands, etc.", Public Information Officer Amanda Hutcheson for Brunswick County said.
