LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Henderson residents can avoid the sad task of dragging their Christmas tree to the curb by instead taking it one of several recycling centers, where it will be chipped into mulch.
Last year, Henderson residents recycled more than 3,600 trees rather than send them to the landfill, according to the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
The department uses the mulch at the city’s parks and for landscaping outside public buildings, so it’s important for participants to remove all non-organic material, such as tinsel as they can damage equipment, according to the department.
The trees can be dropped off from Monday through Jan. 16 at Acacia Park, 50 Casa del Fuego Street; Anthem Hills Park, 2256 N. Reunion Drive; Million Hills Park, 551 E. Mission Drive; Morrell Park, 500 Harris Street; Pecos Legacy Park, 150 Pecos Road; and the Whitney Ranch Recreation Center, 1575 Galleria Drive.
