Recycle Christmas trees and wrappings l-onstot
Updated: 2013-12-28 10:50:17
The city of Joplin will have several collection points for discarded, live Christmas trees running through January 31, 2014. Bring your tree, completely stripped of all decorations, and place it near the “Christmas tree” drop-off sign posted at one of the following locations: Humphreys Park on Utica Street in the Royal Heights area; the parking lot on the southwest corner in McIndoe Park at Glendale Road and Jackson Ave. and the Public Works Center at 1301 West 2nd St.

Discarded Christmas trees are also accepted at the city’s tree limb processing site at 1702 North Schifferdecker Ave. from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The site will continue to be open daily except for New Year’s Day, and Sundays until January 4. The drop-off site is located six tenths of a mile north of Belle Center Road on the west side of Schifferdecker Avenue.

The City of Joplin Recycling Center and Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility accepts many discarded holiday items including, gift wrapping paper (no ribbons please) boxes, bottles, cans, greeting cards, cooking oil, and clean packing materials such as peanuts and bubble wrap. The Center is located at 1310 West A St. and is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The center will be closed January 1. For additional information, call the recycling coordinator at (417) 624-0820, ext. 501.
