It's time to take down those Christmas trees, and there are many ways for you to recycle them this season.

Allegheny County's fifth annual Christmas tree recycling program runs through Saturday, Jan. 19, at all nine regional parks—including Boyce Park in Plum Borough.

Verona Borough's annual Christmas tree burning also will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 11, at 7 p.m. in the park next to the borough building on East Railroad Aveue. People can drop their trees off at the site.

To participate in the county's program, residents can drop off trees from dawn to dusk daily. All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed from trees. 

The trees will be turned into mulch for use in Allegheny County’s nine regional parks.

Trees may be dropped at these locations in the parks:

  • Boyce Park – Parking lot by the wave pool
  • North Park – Parking lot at the swimming pool
  • Settler’s Cabin – Parking lot by the wave pool
  • Hartwood Acres – Parking lot at the mansion
  • Deer Lakes – Parking lot by the Veterans Shelter
  • Harrison Hills – Parking lot at the intersection of Chipmunk and Cottontail drives
  • Round Hill – Parking lot between Meadow and Alfalfa shelters
  • South Park – Parking lot at the swimming pool
