Free Christmas Tree recycling is coming to Temple, Texas on January 12th.

Get rid of your Christmas tree in the greenest way possible by bringing it to the recycling center at 3015 Bullseye Lane, or at 602 Jack Baskin Dr, on January 12th from 9 am to Noon.

Trees will be turned into mulch at no charge. Both recycling centers will have signs on display showing residents where to drop off the live undecorated trees. Do not bring fake trees to the recycle center for recycling.

If you elect to have your tree turned into mulch you will have the option of taking the mulch home for use in your yard or you can select to donate the mulch to the city parks.

Another option is to place your tree curbside during regular brush collection days. Trees picked-up during brush collection days will be composted with other trees.
