The Gila County Solid Waste Department will accept Christmas trees at the landfill for no charge through Jan. 12.
The holiday schedule for the Buckhead Mesa Landfill will be as follows: the landfill will be closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
The department also reminds the public that wrapping paper and boxes are recyclable, and bins for drop off of recycled paper products are located at the Payson County Complex and the Wal-Mart parking lot.
To date, 1,500 tons of paper has been hauled to the Phoenix paper recycling company by the Gila County Solid Waste Department, saving 19 days of landfill space.
