If you're wondering what to do with your Christmas tree now that it's past time to take it down, may we recommend recycling it in Killeen this Saturday?

The City of Killeen and Keep Killeen Beautiful will host a free Christmas tree recycling program at the Killeen Special Events Center, 3301 South W.S. Young Drive, from 9 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, January 6.

The hope is to keep the trees from taking up valuable space in local landfills, and to get use out of them rather than see them wasted.

Trees will be chipped ans shredded on site and offered back as mulch for use on lawns and gardens.

For more information, contact the Keep Killeen Beautiful volunteer center at (254) 501-7878.
