WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – It’s the week after Christmas but a lot of people aren’t in a hurry to tear their Christmas decorations down just yet.

Around the state, cities and counties are offering options to make the cleanup process a little easier.

If tossing out your Christmas tree is on your to-do list, Sedgwick County wants to help.

The county is offering to not only take your old tree, but turn it into mulch that you can keep for free.

There’s 10 locations around Wichita and another 12 in Sedgwick County.

Some smaller cities like Haysville, may have their own drop off sites.

Those locations opened last Tuesday, Dec. 22 and will remain open through Monday, Jan. 23.

For more information on tree disposal in Sedgwick County, you can call (316) 660-7200.

The City of Garden City is also offering their own option.

Residents can have their old Christmas trees picked up from their homes Tuesday, Jan. 3 and Wednesday, Jan. 4.

Just place your tree next to the curb in front of your home beforehand.

The city is asking that you don’t leave them in the alley or put them in a trash can and to make sure all the decorations are removed from the tree before you toss it.
