As long as the lights and tinsel are stripped off of your tree, you can recycle it.  Here's how.

The City of Tyler says all you have to do is drop off your tree at one of two locations.

The tree has to be free of decorations, and of course, out of its tree stand.  Then you can drop off your tree at designated areas at Golden Road Park and Fun Forest Park in Tyler.

Golden Road Park is at the intersection of McDonald Road and Golden Road. Fun Forest Park is in the 900 block of North Glenwood Boulevard.

While you're dragging your evergreen tree to the street, the rest of us will be boxing up our fake trees and hauling them to the attic.  No matter which you have, this is the least fun part of Christmas!  It was so much more exciting to put up the tree.  But it looked good while it lasted.

By the way, you have until January 10th to recycle your tree with the City of Tyler.  And hopefully the fake trees are down by Valentine's Day.
