RENO — Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful needs volunteers for the 20th annual Christmas tree recycling that runs from every day from Dec. 26 through Jan. 17 at Bartley Ranch Regional Park and Rancho San Rafael Regional Park in Reno and Shadow Mountain Sports Complex in Sparks.

Volunteers are needed to unload trees, keep traffic moving in the drop-off areas and collect donations. Shifts are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., 1 to 5 p.m. or all day. To sign up, visit www.ktmb.org, call 851-5185 or e-mail staff@ktmb.org.

For anyone who wants to drop off their Christmas tree, each site will be open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This program is for residents only and no commercial drop-offs can be accepted. Trees must be free of decorations and not flocked. Recycled trees are chipped into mulch to be used year-round for weed abatement projects and to prevent soil erosion in park, river and open space projects. Mulch also can be picked up for free by residents.

Christmas tree recycling is coordinated by Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful in partnership with the city of Sparks Parks and Recreation, Washoe County Regional Parks and Open Space, city of Reno Urban Forestry, Sierra and Truckee Meadows Fire Protection Districts, Tholl Fence, Waste Management Recycle America, the cities of Reno and Sparks, Washoe County and numerous volunteer groups and individuals.
