Free Christmas Tree recycling kicks off in Kern County

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -  

Kern County Waste Management is providing free Christmas Tree recycling, starting on December 26th.
 
County residents can drop off their Christmas Trees at one of 28 locations across the county.  Residents are asked to remove all ornaments, lights, and the tree stand prior to drop-off.
 
Trees can also be recycled in household green waste containers, as long as they are cut into small pieces and the lid closes completely.  Whole trees will not be accepted. 
 
The Christmas Trees will be turned into mulch for use at city parks, trails, and playgrounds.  Trees will be accepted through January 8th.
