TYLER - The City of Tyler Solid Waste Department and Keep Tyler Beautiful are providing two locations for Christmas tree recycling in Tyler.

Residents can drop off undecorated, non-flocked, real Christmas trees starting the day after Christmas through Sunday, Jan. 9 in designated areas at Golden Road Park and Fun Forest Park in Tyler.

Golden Road Park is located at the intersection of McDonald Road and Golden Road. Fun Forest Park is located in the 900 block of North Glenwood Boulevard.

The trees at the parks are available for area fisherman to pick up and sink in nearby lakes to create fish habitats. Small fish eat the aquatic insects that find a home in the tree branches. The fish also use the trees as a hiding place.

Christmas trees will also be picked up at the curb for disposal at the landfill. Only trees deposited at Fun Forest Park and Golden Road Park will be recycled.

It's well documented in American lore that removing a Christmas tree before the New Year is bad luck. If you have to get Christmas over with by the 26th then, maybe you shouldn't have had it at all.
