The first deliveries for the town's tree recycling program came from The Home Depot. About 300 trees were delivered at the Payson Event Center early Tuesday morning by Clint Ellis and Bill Salia, both of Payson.
Christmas tree recycling is an important way to give a renewable, recyclable resource back to the environment.
Area residents can recycle Christmas trees by delivering them to the Payson Event Center, at 1400 S. Beeline.
The tree-recycling drop site will be available to the public from Dec. 27 through Jan. 31. Signs will be posted to direct residents to the appropriate drop-off location within the Payson Event Center.
