Rock Ledge Ranch 1 of 6 Treecycle drop-offs; donations benefit youth programsDec. 26, 2017
“Treecycle,” a recycling program for natural Christmas trees, will be offered at six locations around the city on the weekends of Dec. 30-31 and Jan. 6-7.
The Westside drop-off is the Rock Ledge Ranch parking lot, off Gateway Road at 30th Street, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
People are asked to donate $5 per tree.
Treecycle is coordinated by Colorado Springs Youth Sports (CSYS), which runs the El Pomar Youth Sports Park. "Keep your Christmas tree out of the landfill and pick up free mulch while supplies last,” the CSYS website states.
Trees will be ground into mulch, which will be made available at no charge. For more information on mulch availability, call Rocky Top Resources at 579-9104. Another information number is El Paso County government's Environmental Division at 520-7871.
Tree drop-off donations benefit "community youth programs,” an event flyer states.
The other Treecycle drop-off locations are listed at csyouthsports.org/treecycle.
