Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful has set up 12 Stateline locations where you can recycle your Christmas trees.

You can drop off a Christmas tree from Jan. 1-15. For the full list of locations, click here​.

If you plan to recycle a tree, make sure you remove all ornaments, lights and tinsel. Strands of lights can be recycled separately from trees.

KNIB says other common holiday items, such as gift wrap, tissue paper, ribbons and bows cannot be recycled.
