The city’s Public Works Department offers Phoenix residents a green way to take down their live Christmas trees. Trees can be dropped off for recycling at any of the participating Phoenix parks until Sunday, Jan. 4.
Participating parks include:
• Mountain View Park, Seventh Avenue south of Peoria Avenue
• Washington Park, 23rd and Maryland Avenues
• Madison Park, 16th Street and Glenrosa Avenue
• Los Olivos Park, 28th Street and Devonshire Avenue
Residents also may bring their Christmas trees to A to Z Equipment Rentals and Sales, 4050 E. Indian School Road (602-468-1188) or 15634 N. 32nd St. (602-553-4834), which will accept trees at no charge through Jan. 3. Call for hours, as they vary because of the holidays.
Remember that trees should be cleared of any decorations including tinsel and tree stands and other hardware should also be removed before recycling.
