Christmas Trees: Annual Recycling, Collection Programs
ST. CLOUD -- Looking to get rid of your Christmas tree now that the season is over?
The St. Cloud Park Department along with the Metro Lions Club is holding their 23rd Annual Christmas Tree Recycling tomorrow (Saturday).
From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. you can bring your Christmas tree to Whitney Park where members of the Metro Lions Club, Boy Scout Troop 13 and the St. Cloud Park Department will get rid of it properly.
You are asked to bring non-perishable food items or cash along with your tree which will be donated to an area food shelf.
For more information call 257-5959.
Meanwhile, the city of St. Cloud has designated this Monday and January 13th for its annual collection of Christmas trees.
If you want to use this option, attach a clear city yard waste bag, or green garbage bag, to the tree. Remove all ornaments. And, put the tree in your normal garbage pick-up area by 6:00 a.m.
Wreaths will not be picked-up because they have wire.
