County offers 19 sites to recycle trees

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.
