Santa Rosa County tree recycling

SANTA ROSA COUNTY   --  Now that the holidays are over many people will be taking down the decorations and getting rid of their Christmas trees.
How you can put the unwanted tree to good use.
Kalie Desimone- I am here at one of the many tree drop off locations in Santa Rosa County. This one is located near the Walmart in Gulf Breeze. If you take a look there are already more than a dozen trees  here. These will eventually become part of a project that will benefit the community.

Live Christmas trees can be dropped off until Friday, Jan. 31 at five Santa Rosa County recycling areas. The trees will be chipped and offered as free mulch at clean community system in Milton. The start of that program will be announced at a later date. But when dropping off trees, it is asked that people leave the trees in the designated area identified by signs. You should not place trees in front of the recycling containers. For a full list of where you can drop your Christmas trees in Santa Rosa County.  Log onto our website weartv.com and check out the Newslink section,

Kalie Desimone-
Escambia County doesn't have a program quite like this so you can just leave your tree out on the curb and the ECUA will pick it up.
