Again this year when holiday celebrations are over, the Hot Springs Sanitation Department will accept live Christmas trees at the drive-through Recycling Drop-off Center at the corner of Valley and Runyon streets. Christmas trees must be stripped of tinsel, ornaments and lights and placed at the designated location within the lot. Fishing enthusiasts are welcome to take the trees on a first-come, first serve basis, to use for fish habitat in local waterways.
Residents may also place the trees curbside for collection on their regular leaf and mulch collection day. All recycled trees will be taken to the city’s compost facility. Christmas trees will be accepted throughout the month of January. For more information, contact Solid Waste at 321-6911.
