The Yellowstone County Christmas Tree Recycling Program will continue through Jan. 21.
The Christmas Tree Recycling Program is a popular joint project of Bright N Beautiful, the city of Billings, Yellowstone County and the city of Laurel as well as ZooMontana, Republic Services, Rocky Mountain Compost, Schnitzer Steel, and Hanser Automotive.
Families are encouraged to drop off their undecorated trees at one of eight convenient locations. The collected trees are then transported to Rocky Mountain Compost for grinding into rich pine mulch to be used in freshening up trails by ZooMontana, Montana Audubon Center, Yellowstone River Parks Association and other organizations.
Here are the locations to drop off undecorated trees:
- Billings: ZooMontana, 2100 S. Shiloh Road; Schnitzer Steel, 1100 6th Ave. N.; Hanser Automotive, 430 South Billings Blvd.; and Rocky Mountain Compost, 3060 Farley Lane.
- Laurel: Magnum Development, 220 West Main.
- Lockwood: Lockwood School, 3329 Driftwood Lane.
- Shepherd: Shepherd High School, 7842 Shepherd Road.
- Huntley: United Methodist Church parking lot, 149 Peritse Ave.
