The trees will be used as mulch throughout city parks.

There is no charge for disposal at the Transfer Station and Landfill for residents that can show proof of residency and a residential account with the City of Wichita Falls.

There will be no curbside pickup of Christmas trees. Trees left out by the curb for pickup during the regular trash schedule will not be picked up by sanitation employees.
