Sedgwick County is sponsoring 19 sites where residents can take their natural Christmas trees to be recycled. The sites remain open through Jan. 23. Before taking a tree to one of the sites, remove all decorations. The trees will be chipped periodically at each site, and the resulting mulch will be available for free on a firstcome, first-served basis.
