Fayetteville residents looking to get rid of live Christmas trees may place them at the curb on their regular trash pickup day or take them to the city’s compost site at 1708 S. Armstrong Ave. from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The city’s Solid Waste and Recycling Division will collect the trees for composting, free of charge, through Jan. 12.

City officials ask that enough space be left around the tree to allow for ease of collection and that the trees be removed of all plastic bags, stands, decorations, lights, and tinsel.

No artificial trees will be collected.

For more information, call Brian Pugh, the city’s waste reduction coordinator, at 479-718-7685.
