As the holidays are nearing the end, so are many of our Christmas trees. Drop-off sites are set up across the Northland.
Today, the Western Lake Superior Sanitary District opened 12 different drop-off sites across the city of Duluth.
The 'treecycling' sites will remain open until January 10. Other sites in Carlton will stay open until January 14. WLSSD is also reminding people to avoid dropping off any wreaths, stands or garlands that include metal or wires. The fresh trees are chipped and reused, so metal and other foreign objects cause problems.
The city of Superior said on its web site that people can bring their trees to the north parking lot at Target on January 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Anyone with questions can call (715) 395-1293.
Christmas Light Recycling
There's also a place for people to discard those holiday lights and electrical cords that aren't working anymore
The St. Louis County Environmental Services is partners with others for the "Recycle your Holidays" program. Collection bins will be set up around the county.
You can find a complete list of drop-off locations at St. Louis County's web site or by calling 800-450-9278
