If you had a real Christmas tree this year and aren't sure how to safely and responsibly dispose of it, the Cities of Temple and Killeen want to help you out.

In Temple, strip the tree of all decorations, then take it by the recycling center at either 3015 Bullseye Lane or 602 Jack Baskin Drive between now and Saturday, January 14.

The City of Killeen is hosting its tree recycling event at the Killeen Special Events Center, 3301 South W S Young Drive, on Saturday, January 7 from 9 AM to 2 PM.

Again, please remember to remove all decorations from the trees, including tinsel.
