WHITE CITY, OR --

During Christmas time Christmas trees are all dressed up. As the weeks go by needles start falling. At some point its time to dispose of your live Christmas tree.

Denise Barnes from Rogue Disposal says,"If you want to just have it picked up as solid waste you can call us and make those arrangements. There is a charge of $4.57 for each three foot section."

That means the average six foot tree will cost about nine dollars. Or you can haul the tree yourself. Which also costs money at the drop off site.

Barnes says, "We have a yard debris drop off area. That if you want your tree composted with no decorations or flockingtins or tinsel."

Every year people dispose of Christmas trees. So I asked Denise Barnes the Recycling and Public Education Coordinator for Rogue Disposal how many trees they grind up every year.

Barnes says, "I don't know the answer to that because it's mixed with all the other yard debris coming into our facility."

If you are wondering what happens to the Christmas trees. They are grinded up to become mulch or compost. It's sold to customers like organic farmers and gardeners year round.
