Where to recycle your Christmas tree
Richardson residents can recycle their Christmas tree through the city's Tree Cycling program, which turns trees into mulch and compost. Trees can be dropped off between Dec. 26 and Feb. 1 at the Municipal Service Center, 1260 Columbia Drive, Richardson. Residents can also request bulky item collection service by calling the city's service center at 972-744-4111.
Trees must be natural and decoration free.
How to recycle your cardboard boxes
