EL PASO COUNTY – El Paso County residents will have several opportunities to recycle their Christmas trees in the coming days.

With help from El Paso County, the City of Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Utilities, Rocky Top Resources, and the Colorado Springs Gazette, Colorado Springs Youth Sports will be operating a TreeCycle event with hopes of reducing tree waste, providing free mulch, and supporting youth sports.

For a suggested minimum donation of only $5 per tree, area residents can drop off trees at six locations.

According to the group, Colorado Springs Youth Sports is a charitable non-profit organization that operates the El Pomar Yout Sports Park. They said 100 percent of donations received will benefit area youth.
