Posted by: KLKN Newsroom

With Christmas becomes a fading memory, Christmas tree recycling sites around the state are opening up to take live Christmas trees.

In Lincoln, there are seven sites around the city where live Christmas trees can be recycled through January 11. The trees will be turned into wood chip mulch.

Omaha has eight collection sites that opened this week and will accept trees through Jan. 6. Sites around Omaha will also be opened, including those in Bellevue and Papillion.

In La Vista, just southwest of Omaha, trees may be dropped off starting Saturday through Jan. 16 at the La Vista Soccer Complex parking lot and Kelly West parking lot
