It's nearly time for the final chore of the holiday season -- getting that Christmas tree out of your house.
With any luck, most of the needles will stay on the tree at least until you get it outside.
State College work crews will be out collecting trees for recycling from Monday, Jan. 5 until Friday, Jan. 16.
From Jan. 5 through Jan. 9, residents in College, Ferguson, Harris, and Patton Townships will also have have an opportunity to have their Christmas trees recycled. Trash crews will pick up trees left at the curb on your regular trash collection day.
Trees from those townships will be taken to the State College Compost Facility and recycled into mulch. After Jan. 9 trees will be hauled away as part of the normal trash pick-up.
Please note that road crews in College Township will continue collecting trees for recycling through early February (as long as weather holds up).
