Recycle your Christmas tree


Christmas tree recycling will occur throughout Mahoning County through Jan. 31, the county recycling division has announced.

Trees will be collected at curbside in Struthers.

In other communities, trees will be collected at the following locations: Community Corrections Association, 1771 Market St., Youngstown; Roosevelt Park in Campbell; Austintown Township Park; the Messerly Road fire station in Canfield; the Poland Township Road Department, 7508 Clingan Road; the Lowellville Street Department, 3 W.
