It is time to take down your Christmas tree and it is free until January 17th. All you have to do is clean your old tree of all tinsel and decorations and then drop it off at the collection location at Road 36 just north of Argent Street in Pasco. The ground up trees will be spread out as chips on the running paths for the Tri-Cities Cross Country Running Course.

This service is sponsored by Franklin County, BDI and the Department of Ecology. For more information, call 509-545-3551.
