City offers Christmas tree disposal

The City of Cortez has opened two drop off sites for Christmas tree disposal.

City officials said trees could be dropped off at either the Cortez BMX Park at 1339 E. Empire St. or in the parking lot at the corner of First and Elm streets. Trees will be chipped and removed at both sites through Jan. 10.

The city plans to launch a curbside service for Christmas tree removal starting Jan. 6 with final curbside removal on Jan. 10.
