Your old Christmas tree is also a valuable sustainable resource. During this TreeCycle season, the City of Tucson will grind up Christmas trees and have chips available for the public at the Randolph Golf Course, 600 S. Alvernon Way, and at the Los Reales Landfill, 5300 E. Los Reales Road.
Bring your own container(s) and take home some free “Merry Mulch” for your garden. Mulch retains moisture in the soil, adds nutrients, and enhances the appearance of a landscape. If you want a large amount of mulch chips, you can pick them up at the Los Reales Landfill while supplies last. TreeCycle runs through Jan. 15.
