In the past, the city of Greenville has had a drop off point. All trees dropped off are then ground into mulch, which you can take for free.

Anyone have info on this? Is the city doing this again?

How about Christmas lights? Next year I'm going all LED, got some good deals on after Christmas sales. I have a bunch of used, but working lights and some brand new still in packages (mini-lights).

Will Goodwill take these?

Cut it up into smaller pieces. It is yard debris. It's a tree.

Regarding Christmas lights, I think Goodwill will take about anything. :-)

Here's a handy list of where to take your tree for recycling, in case you live in an area not convenient to those listed in the other post.

I know home depot and lowes were accepting them during the holidays in some sort of exchange program, not sure if you can still drop them off there or not??
