The City of Midland has two drop off areas designated for Christmas tree disposal.
Residents are encouraged to take their trees to the following areas:
• Citizen Collection Station, 4100 Smith Rd. (north of Claydesta Post Office off Veterans Airpark Lane)
• Hogan Park - Field #7, 1201 E. Wadley Ave. (behind the Armory; enter off Lamesa Road) – trees can be dropped off through Monday, Jan. 15, 2013.
Parks and sanitation crews will pick up the trees from the Hogan Park location and haul them to the city landfill for mulching. The mulching saves landfill space and can be used later as fertilizer.
Please note that the disposal of trees in areas besides the listed sites is considered illegal dumping.
