HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Henderson residents are being invited to recycle live Christmas trees at one of several recycling centers, where it will be chipped into mulch.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/vwhgBT) the recycling effort begins Monday.
Henderson officials say that residents last year donated more than 3,600 trees rather than send them to the landfill.
The Parks and Recreation uses tree mulch at city parks and for landscaping outside public buildings.
Participants are asked to remove non-organic material such as tinsel that could damage mulching equipment.
The trees can be dropped off until Jan. 16 at Acacia Park, Anthem Hills Park, Million Hills Park, Morrell Park, Pecos Legacy Park and the Whitney Ranch Recreation Center.
