Now that the new year is here and the hangover’s are hopefully a thing of the past, one daunting task still remains, taking down the Christmas tree. Somehow it isn’t as much fun as putting one up.

You could just toss it in your neighbours yard and take your chances, or you can recycle it at the following locations:
