Christmas is over, which means it’s time to trash the tree.
Many municipalities are offering free tree recycling services to residents with a natural tree. Some communities are planning to put the trees through a chipper and use the remnants to cover park trails and other green spaces. Here is the schedule for live tree drop-offs:
Ada Township (Through Jan. 12)
- Ada Township Park, from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Alpine Township (Through Jan. 31)
- Behind Township Hall, 5255 Alpine Ave. NW
