The San Marcos Parks & Recreation Department will accept Christmas trees for recycling beginning Monday, Dec. 28 through Jan. 13 at the Grant Harris Building, 401 E. Hopkins.
Residents are asked to remove all ornaments and lights and place the trees in the fenced enclosure next to the stage. Mulch from the trees is available free to the public. Residents must load the mulch on their own vehicles. The remaining mulch will be used on City parks.
San Marcos residents who want to dispose of Christmas trees at the curb through Texas Disposal Systems should call Public Services during business hours at 393.8026 to arrange for a bulky waste pick up.
