To get into the true Christmas spirit and recycle your own tree this year, just complete these easy steps...

First, remove all of the tree's accessories, including the stand, lights, tinsel and ornaments. If these items are left on, they could contaminate the recycling process.

Second, don't put your Christmas tree in a plastic bag for recycling. Instead, to avoid getting pine needles everywhere, simply wrap the tree in a blanket for temporary transport to your nearest recycling drop-off.

Third, Make sure you bring your tree to one of the two locations between December 26, 2016 and January 6, 2017.
