PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Allegheny County is holding its annual Christmas tree recycling program again this year.

From Dec. 26 to Jan. 14, residents can drop off their trees at all nine county parks from 8 a.m. to dusk.

Before you take your tree to be recycled, all lights, decorations, tinsel and strands have to be removed. Trees will be mulched and then used in county parks.

Last year, about 3,500 trees were recycled.

Here’s a list of the drop-off locations:

  • Boyce Park — Soccer Fields Parking Lot
