City offers free Christmas tree recycling at Howelsen Ice Arena
The gift of giving continues this holiday season as residents recycle their Christmas trees with the city of Steamboat Springs and the trees live on as mulch for city parks and homeowners.
People can safely dispose of their natural Christmas trees through Jan. 31 by dropping them off in the northwest corner of the Howelsen Ice Arena parking lot. Drop-off is available seven days a week from sunrise to sunset and all tinsel, ornaments, lights and nails must be removed, and wreaths are not accepted.
The mulch will be provided to residents on a first-come, first-served basis in the spring as well as be used in city parks during the coming year.
