Allegheny County residents can drop off old Christmas trees at White Oak, Round Hill and other regional parks through Jan. 19, a spokeswoman said.
The county's Department of Parks will grind up the trees for mulch to be used in the parks. All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed before the trees are dropped off.
It's the fifth year that Allegheny County has offered the tree recycling program. Trees may be dropped off in Round Hill Park, Elizabeth Township, at the parking lot between the Meadow and Alfalfa shelters or in White Oak Park at the parking lot by the Poplar shelter. Trees may only be left during daylight hours.
Drop-off points are also available in seven other regional county parks, including Boyce and South parks. Visit the county's website or call (412) 350-7275 for more information.
