Christmas trees can be dropped off on Road 36

By The Tri-City HeraldDecember 26, 2013 

People can bring old Christmas trees to the cross country running course on Road 36 in Pasco, just off Argent Road, to be recycled.

Franklin County Solid Waste Division is chipping evergreen trees and placing the chips over the running track to improve the surface, said organizer Bill Leahy. People can bring trees any time before mid-January and throw them over the fence, but may not block the track's entrance.
