Residents of Cedar Park and Leander are invited to recycle their holiday trees during the first week of January.
In Cedar Park, the tree recycling event runs from 9 a.m.–noon Jan. 5. Residents can drop off their trees at the Cedar Park Recreation Center, 1435 Main St., Cedar Park, and early participants receive a complimentary tree sapling while supplies last. Boy Scout Troop 223 is also offering to pick up trees for a $10 fee.
Recycled trees will be made into mulch for landscaping in parks and other city-owned properties.
In Leander, the Parks and Recreation Department is accepting holiday trees from 6 a.m.–10 p.m. daily at Robin Bledsoe Park, 601 S. Bagdad Road. The last day to drop off a holiday tree is Jan. 7.
Any tree delivered for recycling must be free of decorations and lights.
