Don’t just toss out your Christmas tree without a second thought this year—recycle it!
The City of Littleton and South Suburban Parks and Recreation are collecting trees and mulching them until Jan. 12, 2015.
The Littleton collection site is located at Cornerstone Park, which is on the southeast corner of West Bellview Avenue and South Windermere Street. The drop-off site is in the parking lot adjacent to the soccer fields and can be accessed on Windermere.
In addition, South Suburban will collect trees at its Willow Springs Service Center (WSSC), located at 7100 South Holly Street in Centennial. Look for the designated enclosure by the front gate.
Residents can drop off their tree seven days a week, from sunrise to sunset, at both locations.
All items such as lights, ornaments, nails, bags and so on must be removed before dropping the trees off. The trees will be ground into mulch, which will be available free to the public at the sites for as long as the supply lasts.
For information call 303-795-3863.
