Christmas is over and some families are already taking down their decorations, including the Christmas tree.
Instead of throwing your tree away, Traverse City is offering Christmas tree recycling.
Just drop your tree off at Hull Park near the boat launch.
The city will recycle the trees into mulching material and trail surfacing around the city.
Vickie Anderson says recycling her Christmas tree has become a holiday tradition.
“I want to contribute back to nature if at all possible and I found out about the local organization my parents used to do it, I’m from Traverse City and I just know that it’s the best way to do it.”
You can drop off your tree at Hull Park through January 15th.
