2015 is done, Christmas is well in the rear-view mirror…. except for your Christmas tree. It’s over, let go, give it up and move on. You can get it back later as mulch and wood chips.

Within the City limits of Cheyenne this Saturday, Jan. 9, you can have your tree removed from in front of your house. Just it have it on your front curb by 6:30 a.m. without any lights, ornaments, tinsel, wire, nails, plastic bags or other non-natural materials and The Boy Scouts Of America will take care of it for you.

Not that there’s ever any wind in Wyoming, but if it gets windy, trees should be attached securely  to a mailbox or fixture with twine that can be easily cut.

If you’d like to get your Christmas tree back, you can. But it will be in the form of mulch available from the City Of Cheyenne.
If you need to know more, call the Sanitation Division at 937-6440.

In Casper you can drop off your clean tree (free of lights, ornaments, tinsel, wire, nails, plastic bags or other non-natural materials) at Paradise Valley Pool, South Mike Sedar Park, Agricultural Resource & Learning Center on Fairgrounds Road, the K Street athletic complex or Viking Court until the end of January.

This is an earth friendly method of disposal, because these trees will be recycled into wood chips or be used by Wyoming Game and Fish. If for whatever reason you can’t drop off your tree, you can call the City of Casper and they will pick it up.
