Now That Christmas Is Past, What About The Christmas Tree [VIDEO]

Unless you go the fake tree route, you’ve got a huge plant dying in your living room.

You wandered all over to find the perfect tree, went through hell getting it home and set up in the house; then spent forever decorating it.  (And probably sent/posted hundreds of pictures of it so everyone would be jealous of your “tree whispering” abilities.)

Now it’s bare, dry and dropping needles all over the place.  Whatcha’ gonna do?

You can try replanting it or, maybe, cut it up for firewood.  (Just don’t burn it if it’s still really wet inside … that can be dangerous!)

Better yet, recycle it!  El Paso has several tree drop off points around town.  The trees will be turned into mulch which you can get a bunch of for yourself while you’re there.

Just make sure you get ALL the decorations, tinsel, etc off the tree before dropping it off at any of these sites:

4200 Delta in South El Paso.

121 Atlantic on the West Side.

1034 Pendale on the East Side.

2492 Harrison in Central El Paso.

4501 Hondo Pass in Northeast El Paso.

Hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. (Closed New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.  You do NOT have to be a customer of the El Paso water or sanitation services)

For more info, call 621-6700.
