(Port Angeles) -- What to do with your Christmas tree? If you live in Port Angeles, you can re-cycle it.

Beginning Monday, January 7th, Christmas trees will be collected curbside.

Trees must be cut into 4-foot lengths, bundled, and put out on your regular garbage collection day.

Please remove all the tinsel and ornaments, and they cannot take flocked trees.

You don't have to be a yard waste subscriber to get this once-a-year free service.

City officials say each year they collect about 600 Christmas trees for composting.

County residents can take their trees to the yard debris area of the Regional Transfer Station, Monday thru Saturday, from 9 till 5.

A minimum yard waste fee of $5 is charged.

The trees are mixed with other yard debris and made into Garden Glory compost.
