How to recycle your Christmas tree

HOUSTON - All of the presents have been opened and it's time to start getting ready for New Year's Eve! So what can you do with your old Christmas tree?

City of Houston residents can recycle their trees by dropping them off at one of 26 free sites. The program will run until January 15, 2018.
