As a reminder, several area communities are accepting recycled Christmas trees. Beginning Wednesday, the Double Oak Town Council is providing a 30-yard roll-off container in the parking lot by the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department for the collection of Christmas trees.
The Dumpster is only for Christmas trees — no artificial trees with all lights and decorations removed — and is only for use by Double Oak residents.
Town officials ask that residents do not leave anything outside of the Dumpster. When it is full, nothing else should be dropped off or left on the ground.
As part of the town’s agreement with Waste Management, residents can receive four free passes to the landfill. The passes are available at town hall.
The Flower Mound Parks and Recreation Division is offering free Christmas tree recycling from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m, through Jan. 5 at Gerault Park, 1200 Gerault Road.
The recycling program at 1200 Gerault Road will be offered to residents only, and will not be available to commercial Christmas tree businesses.
Trees cannot be flocked, and must have all the nails and decorations removed as well. Lumber and trash will not be allowed.
Residents who would like mulch are encouraged to bring their own containers. For more information, call 972-874-PARK (7275).
In Highland Village, residents can drop off Christmas trees at Unity Park, 2200 Briarhill Boulevard during the day through Jan. 2.
All decorations should be removed. Trees should be dropped off in the Kids Kastle parking lot.
