Ottawa residents who are unsure what to do with their live Christmas trees after the holidays have an option close at hand.

The City of Ottawa has designated the asphalt parking lot on the east side of the Orlis Cox Sports Complex, near the intersection of Beech Street and West K-68 in Ottawa, as the drop-off site for live Christmas trees, according to a city news release.

Signs will be posted to direct people to the proper drop site. Residents are urged to take their trees as far northeast as possible in the lot, city officials said.

Trees must be stripped of decorations and free of plastic before being dropped off, the news release said.

City crews plan to remove trees from the lot beginning Jan. 13. Residents are asked to drop off their trees before that date.

For more information, call the city’s public works department at (785) 229-3630.
