Dried out Christmas trees can be a serious fire hazard.

That's why folks in Odessa are asking you to recycle your old trees.

You can get rid of your tree at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility on West 42nd Street.

You can take your tree starting this Tuesday (12-25) through Friday (12-28) between 1 and 5 in the afternoon, and next Saturday (12-29) from 9am to 3pm.

Those trees will be used as mulch.

Remember that dumping trees in alleys or anywhere else is illegal.
