Speaking of the holidays if you are getting rid of your Christmas tree you can recycle it with the City.

There are two different locations one near the corners of Hartford and Jefferson Drive and one at the water tower on Buffalo Gap road.
This is a free service and you can leave it inside the orange fencing.
City officials say they will put the trees in a wood chipper to make mulch.
Mulch can be picked up at the brush center who also takes Christmas trees there.
The City will have the offsite locations available for tree drop-off until January 5th.
