While the holiday season may be behind us, perhaps you still have a few decorations around, including your Christmas tree. The city of Bozeman is offering a way to recycle that holiday cheer.
"It's basically a courtesy program for the residents of Bozeman. Just to help dispose of their trees. It also helps us because we can use some of the composted materials for different things," says City Arborist Jennifer Roth.
On top of chipping up the trees, the wildlife federation will be using some to build fish habitats in Canyon Ferry Lake.
So far about 20,000 to 25,000 pounds of trees have been collected, which is on track to match last year's 90,000 pounds. The program will run through February 15th.
There are four locations:
- BMX Park (entrance on Tamarack)
- Christie Field (Mason Street)
- Softball Complex (lower parking lot on Haggerty)
- Regional Park (north of Oak across from Yellowstone)
