This is always the hardest time of the year for me.  Time to take down the Christmas tree.  No more looking at the beautiful ornaments or smelling the fresh pine.  But what do you do with your tree?  The City of Amarillo is helping residents to recycle their trees for free!

If you have a real Christmas tree there is always the hassle of disposing of it.  Where can you drop it and how much is it going to cost you?  Well, the City of Amarillo is stepping in to help.

Now through February 1st, you can take your tree to any of city's four brush sites and dispose of it for free.  They do ask that all the decorations and lights are off before dropping it off.

Load your tree up and take it to 8745 Helium Road, 801 North Soncy, 3401 Broadway or 3718 South Eastern.

The trees will then be turned into mulch.  They City is then allowing residents to come and pick up as much free mulch as they would like.
