The holiday season has ended, and it’s time to get rid of those Christmas trees, fox 2 news spoke to experts from the McAllen Recycling Center to find out how you can properly dispose of yours.

For some, December marks the beginning of Christmas, but for others it’s seen as the month that produces the most trash throughout the year, the month in which most electricity is used, and also the month most pollution is released into the atmosphere. These latter facts are why experts are advising on how to dispose of your Christmas spirit–the eco friendly way. If you live in McAllen you may leave your tree in front of your home, or go to the recycling center nearest you. However if you live in the valley, you should drop your tree and trash off at the nearest recycling center, just as Mr. Coning has done, who is coming from the city of mission. By recycling your tree you’re not only helping the environment but also contributing to the gardening industry as trees are crushed and converted into fertilizer for plants. Visit the official site of your city to know where you can recycle your tree and contribute fighting pollution to keep the planet safe. Remember, if you deposit your tree in the trash will not be recycled. If you’d like more information on these important tips you may call the number (956) 681-4050.
