With the holiday season coming to an end, residents in Williamson County looking to get rid of their fresh-cut trees have multiple options to recycle them.

Trees will be turned into wood chips to be used at local parks and to prevent erosion at county landfills, according to the city of Brentwood.

The city of Brentwood will offer tree recycling at the following locations through Jan. 17 from 6:30 a.m. until close:

Crockett Park, 1500 Volunteer Pkwy., Brentwood

Granny White Park, 610 Granny White Pike, Brentwood

River Park, 110 Knox Valley Drive, Brentwood

The city of Franklin will also accept trees through Feb. 2 at three park locations from dawn until dusk, in addition to curbside service:

Jim Warren Park, 705 Boyd Mill Ave., Franklin

Liberty Park, 2080 Turning Wheel Lane, Franklin

In addition to those locations, Williamson County residents can also recycle trees and other yard waste year round at the county's 10 convenience centers. Find all 10 locations here.

Convenience centers will be closed on Jan. 1, according to the county.

Residents should remove tree stands, lights, ornaments, hooks and other decorations from the tree before bringing it to a center or drop-off location.
