Towns have several ways to discard trees

Crews in Huntington and Warren will pick up your discarded live Christmas tree if you haul it to the curb.
In Andrews and Markle, compost heaps are open for residents to dispose of trees on their own.

Here are instructions for disposing of your live Christmas tree after the holidays:

The Huntington Street Department will start collecting live trees on Dec. 27.

Residents who would like to have their trees picked up should call the street department in advance of their pick-up day at 356-4720.

The trees will be added to the brush pile (compost heap) at the landfill.

Town crews will pick up discarded live Christmas trees for about a week after the first of the year. Residents should place those trees at the curb.

The trees will be placed in the town compost pile.

The town has designated an area at the end of Terrell St., for residents to take their live trees. The area is just past the location where the mud bog contest is held each year.

The town of Markle is advising in-city residents that if they have live Christmas trees that need to be discarded, residents should take them to the town compost pile. This applies to residents in the city only.

As of press time, information from the town of Roanoke was unavailable.
