Only real trees that have been completely stripped of the tree stand, all decorations and lights will be accepted. No artificial trees will be accepted.The trees that are dropped off will be ground up and used as mulch. The program will end Sunday, January 13th at the park locations but city residents can use the Landfill or Transfer Station for their tree disposal any day during normal operating hours. There is no charge for this service at the Transfer Station or Landfill for residents of Wichita Falls.
Residents are encouraged to take advantage of these disposal methods, as there is no curbside pickup of Christmas trees. Trees left out by the curb for pickup during the regular trash schedule will not be picked up by sanitation employees. For more information please contact Dave Lehfeldt at 761-7977
