When its time to take down those Christmas decorations and you're wondering what to do with that leftover Christmas tree, consider donating it to build a fish habitat! Clarksville Parks and Recreation will recycle the trees. People may drop off trees during business hours or leave trees outside the gates after hours.
We have a list of a few of them below - if your city or county is not listed check with your local officials.
After Jan. 12, the City of Midland will collect Christmas trees during residents' once-a-month heavy item and brush collection week.
Before putting the tree on the curb, be sure to strip it of all lights, tinsel, wire, ornaments and whatever non-tree material might be hanging from it.
To recycle a Christmas tree, yard debris customers can put small trees in their yard debris cart for free; set one tree cut into sections of five feet or shorter next to an empty yard debris cart at no extra charge.

But those trees will end up in the landfill along with the approximate 210,000 tons - that's 420 million pounds - of waste we put into the Laubscher Meadows landfill in Vanderburgh County every year.
