Eau Claire offers Christmas tree recycling program

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- If you’re looking to recycle your Christmas tree, you can do so in Eau Claire.

From now until January 31 you can drop off your tree at the Jeffers Road brush site for free at 5710 Jeffers Road. It’s all part of the Merry Mulch program that turns old Christmas trees into mulch for people in the spring.

If you want to drop off your tree at the Jeffers road site, you'll have to do it during daylight hours. Boxx Sanitation tells WEAU 13 News that if you want to drop a wreath, make sure there is no metal wire in it.

The program is sponsored by Boxx Sanitation and the City of Eau Claire.
