If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly alternative to simply tossing your tree out with the fruit cake you got from Aunt Edna, you’re in luck!
The Office of Sustainability has announced that they will offer seven recycling locations for trees around Indianapolis. The partnership with Indy Parks, will help to divert waste from the landfill and the trees will be used to add mulch to our parks and street trees.
