Keep Killeen Beautiful offers free green alternative to preserve landfill space.
Free Christmas tree recycling is scheduled Saturday, January 5, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Killeen Special Events Center, 3301 South W.S. Young Drive.
Keep Killeen Beautiful works with City staff in an annual effort to recycle live Christmas trees and keep them from landfills. Trees are chipped and shredded on site and offered back to participants as mulch for use on their lawns or gardens.
All ornaments, lights, tinsel and other decorations must be removed prior to dropping off trees.
Recycling saves valuable space in our landfills, so residents are encouraged to take advantage of this free opportunity to go green.
For more information about this and other Keep Killeen Beautiful programs, call the Volunteer Center at 501-7878.
