Program accepting trees through Jan. 14
Allegheny County parks are accepting Christmas trees for recycling through Jan. 14, a spokeswoman said.
All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed from trees prior to drop-off at designated areas in all nine regional parks between 8 a.m. and dusk daily. Trees will be mulched and used in the county parks.
Local drop-off locations include:
• Boyce Park: Soccer fields parking lot
• Round Hill Park: Alfalfa Shelter parking lot
• South Park: Wave pool parking lot
• White Oak Park: Chestnut Shelter parking lot
The list of drop-off locations is also available online.
During the 2018-19 holiday season, the spokeswoman said, approximately 3,500 trees were received and recycled, with the resulting mulch used for various purposes throughout the park system’s 12,000 acres.
