It’s something people don’t want to think about but, what to do with your Christmas tree now that Christmas is over?
The City of Hays is encouraging people to bring Christmas trees to the free disposal site located north of the Public Works building at 1002 Vine Street. This area is right next to the bathrooms at Speier ball fields. Place the trees inside the orange snow fence area.
Signs will be posted to direct citizens. Please remove all plastic, ornaments, and lights before leaving the tree. The disposal site will be open Thursday, December 17, 2015 through Saturday, January 16, 2016.
Midwest Energy will provide personnel and a wood chipper to chip the trees to make mulch. The mulch will be placed at the Parks Department on the 183 Bypass and is available for pickup free of charge.
If there are questions, please call the Solid Waste Division at 628-7357.
