ALPAR's Christmas Tree Recycling comes to Anchorage and the Valley again this holiday season. Beginning December 28 through mid-January (check their website for this year's dates), residents can recycle their live Christmas trees at all Anchorage and Palmer CARRS / Safeway stores. Please remove decorations and stands and NO wreaths please. Trees are made into fragrant wood chips for use on local trails. Boy Scout Troop 268 will pick up trees in Anchorage for an optional small fee. This program is sponsored by the businesses of ALPAR, CARRS/Safeway and Municipality of Anchorage Solid Waste Services. Thanks to our media sponsors: Anchorage Media Group radio stations, GCI and Anchorage Daily News.
