Elkhart has drop-off locations for residents trying to get rid of their Christmas trees.
They include Northside Gym, Westside Middle School parking lot, Pierre Moran Pavilion, and Riverview Park parking lot.
The city asks that all decorations are removed before disposal.
You can get rid of lights at the Elkhart Environmental Center through Jan. 31.
Broken and unwanted lights can be put into a collection bin outside of the center’s Visitor’s Cabin.
They are accepting broken string lights, extension cords, and scrap wire.
