Oakland County Parks and Recreation is making holiday cleanup easy and environmentally friendly by offering to recycle Christmas trees.
Starting on Dec. 26th through Jan. 13th residents can bring their Christmas trees to several park locations in the county for recycling.
Assistance removing trees from vehicles is unavailable and the program is a self-service.
All decorations, plastic, tinsel and wire must be removed from trees prior to recycling and large quantities from commercial lots will not be accepted.
Processed trees for compost and wood chips are available to the public free of charge in 2013.
