SPOKANE, Wash.—Neighbors have a few environmentally friendly options to discard their dried up Christmas trees. Spokane Trash Service will pick up trees placed alongside garbage bins on regularly schedule pick up days. The city will accept trees up to 6 feet in height but if they are taller, they must be cut in half.

Those trees will be chipped up and composted. All Spokane city and county residents can also take their trees to the Waste to Energy Facility on Geiger.  Posted at KREM.com Read more.

When do you take your Christmas Tree down?
