Cedar Park and Leander residents who are removing holiday decorations can bring their used Christmas trees to their cities' parks and recreation departments.
The Cedar Park Parks and Recreation Department will hold a single-day tree collection event Saturday, Jan. 3 from 9 a.m. to noon. Residents can bring their used trees to the Cedar Park Recreation Center at 1435 Main St. and receive free seedlings while supplies last.
In Leander, residents can bring their used trees every day through Saturday, Jan. 10 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The drop-off site is Robin Bledsoe Park at 601 S. Bagdad Road.
Both city departments ask residents to remove all stands and decorations such as lights, tinsel and ornaments from their trees before donating them. Both cities will use any donated trees to provide mulch for city landscaping projects.
