It's not even Christmas yet but the Western Lake Superior Sanitary District and their partners are getting ready to accept recycled natural Christmas trees.

The annual Treecycling program offers multiple locations available 24-hours a day throughout the region.

Make sure all ornaments, lights and non-natural items are off the tree. Wire wreaths should be disposed of in your garbage.

WLSSD's Yard Waste Compost Site - just off Interstate 35 at the 27th Avenue West exit - is already open for those residents who may take down their trees before leaving for the holidays, and it will remain open through Jan. 31.

Six sites are open for tree drop-off from Dec. 26 to Jan. 10, including the Chester Bowl parking lot by the playground; Lester Park parking lot by the playground; the parking lot across the street from Duluth Heights Community Club; Woodland Community Club at the lower parking lot off Woodland Ave.; the Rose Garden parking lot; and the city of Duluth's West Toolhouse on Commonwealth Avenue.

Two sites in Carlton County are open Dec, 26 to Jan. 14, including the SAPPI Fine Paper gatehouse entrance in Cloquet and the Moose Lake Compost Site across from the city garage.

Three additional sites are open Dec, 26 to Jan. 31, including Demolicious in western Duluth; VONCO V Landfill in the Gary neighborhood; and the WLSSD Materials Recovery Center off Rice Lake Road.
