Trying to figure out what to do with leftover Christmas Trees?

North Mankato residents may dispose of Christmas trees Tuesday through January 12 at the city's residential compost site, 600 Webster Ave.

Trees dropped off at the sites are ground into mulch.

To recycle a Christmas tree, yard debris customers can put small trees in their yard debris cart for free; set one tree cut into sections of five feet or shorter next to an empty yard debris cart at no extra charge.

"Real Christmas trees are biodegradable and we are able to recycle them into mulch or compost", said Environmental Management Director Joe Suleyman.

If you have access to a chainsaw, you can also use the tree for firewood.

The City of Wilmington will offer tree pickup with regularly scheduled trash services.

As an added bonus, the tree could be used as an opportunity for the family to get a closer look at the animals that share the area with them.

Tree preparation requirements vary, but for the most part, all branches must be stripped of ornaments, lights, tinsel, wire, stands, plastic and other added materials. Trees can also be "decorated" by hanging peanut butter filled pine cones, suet and seed mixes, or fruit.

In Brunswick County, residents can drop their trees at the landfill or at a convenience center.
