Oh, Christmas tree.
With Christmas come and gone for another year, recycling your Tannenbaum is easy with these local programs.
In Cranberry, Christmas trees will be picked up as part of the township’s regular waste collection service from Jan. 7 through Jan. 18. Residents are reminded to remove all ornaments, tinsel and lights before placing the tree on the curb.
