If a live holiday tree was the centerpiece of your decor, here are some ways to dispose of it.

The city of Katy Public Works Department will provide curbside pickup Jan. 7, according to the city’s website. The city asks that all decorations be removed from the tree. Additionally, the tree must be placed on the curb by 8 a.m.

The city of Fulshear will treat Christmas trees as yard waste, so it can be picked up on regular trash days, according to the city’s website. Curbside pickup for the trees will be available so long as smaller trees are placed in sturdy plastic bags and larger trees are cut, bundled and tied. More information about preparing yard waste is available on Fulshear's website.

For those who live outside of Katy and Fulshear city limits—or those that do but miss the curbside pickup days—they can drop off the tree at one of the locations in the area:
