Indy Parks & Recreation will offer eight drop-off locations in Marion County for residents to recycle their Christmas trees from Dec. 26, 2009, through Jan. 31, 2010.

Indy Parks’ tree recycling program diverts waste from the landfill and adds mulch to our parks and street trees. Last year, Indy Parks recycled more than 15,000 Christmas trees. Residents are encouraged to help make Indianapolis a more sustainable city and take advantage of this easy, environmentally friendly way to dispose of their trees.

Residents are asked to remove all ornaments, lights, tree stands, plastic bags, nails and other decorations before drop-off. No artificial trees or materials will be accepted. Trees will be accepted at the following locations during normal park hours (dawn to dusk), seven days a week. Follow signs within each park to the specific drop-off locations.

* Broad Ripple Park, 1610 Broad Ripple Ave., south lot.
* Ellenberger Park, 5301 E. Saint Clair St., west of pool in main parking lot.
* Garfield Park, 2345 Pagoda Drive, Burrello Family Center parking lot.
* Krannert Park, 605 S. High School Road, north parking lot.
