Christmas tree recycling continues until Jan. 23

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

If you are looking for a place to discard your non-artificial Christmas tree, then there are nearly two dozen drop-off sites in Wichita and Sedgwick County.

For the 16th year, Sedgwick County is hosting the tree recycling program, from December 22 to January 23. 

County park personnel ground the trees into mulch. That mulch is available for people to pick up for free.

"I'm glad people want to recycle and not just throw them away and let them kind of deteriorate in the landfills," said Todd Balfour, recycling tree.

Last year, the county recycled more than 5,000 trees.

For more information, call (316) 660-7200.
