Valley locations to recycle your Christmas tree

It's already time to figure out what to do with that Christmas tree sitting in your living room.

Mesa residents can recycle their Christmas tree for free through January 13, 2013.

The city of Mesa asks everyone to remove all nails, tinsel, lights and ornaments from the trees before dropping them off. Trees painted white, or flocked, will not be accepted because it does not break down in the environment. Wreaths will not be accepted either, because of the metal wiring.

You may also pay $19.99 and have your tree picked up curbside. The Christmas "Treecycling" program is provided for Mesa residents only.

Here are the five locations for 24-hour drop off:

• City of Mesa Solid Waste Management Department, 730 N. Mesa Dr.
• East Mesa Service Center, 6935 E. Decatur St.
• Superstitions Springs Police/Fire Substation, 2430 S. Ellsworth Rd.
• Mountain View Park, 845 N. Lindsay Rd. (Enter off Adobe St.)
• Dobson Ranch Park, 2363 S. Dobson Rd.
• Salt River Landfill, 13602 N Beeline Hwy.

Apartment and condominium complexes can schedule a one-time pick up at no charge. Those requests need to be submitted by Jan. 10.

The City of Phoenix is also accepting trees at any participating park until January 5, 2013. Participating parks include:

Deer Valley Park, 19th Avenue and Utopia Road
Paradise Valley Park, 40th Street south of Union Hills Drive
