Specifically, residents with alley collection are instructed to place their Christmas trees in the alley, where they normally set out trash and recycling.
The program, which began in 1988, collects discarded Christmas trees which are then chipped into mulch and offered to the public at no cost.
Officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will take real Christmas trees for recycling on Wednesday, Dec. 20 through Thursday, Jan. 11 at Riverside Middle School in Evans. "Recycling keeps those natural resources from being lost to the landfill, and the trees will be reused as mulch or fuel".
Wire, metal ornaments, tree stands and plastic bags should be removed from trees before they are discarded.

There is also a suggested donation of one dollar per tree. The Red Bank location is close to the road, so residents are asked to bring trees to that location during business hours, if possible. If trash is picked up in the alley, trees should be placed in the alley; trees should not lean against electrical poles, trash containers, water meters, etc. Trees should be loose and not placed inside trash or recycling containers.
Denver residents can set their trees out for collection at their normal trash pick-up location by 7 a.m. on January 5 or January 12. After Jan. 6, residents will need to call (727) 893-7398 to arrange a special collection.
Residents who wish to drop off Christmas trees themselves may do so starting Tuesday, Dec. 26.
