For those in the Cape Fear Region who celebrated Christmas with a live Christmas Tree and who are wondering what to do with the tree, look no further. A dead Christmas tree should be good to burn in a monitored outdoor fire pit, though.

We have a list of a few of them below - if your city or county is not listed check with your local officials.

Joe Hyndman recycles puts one of his family's Christmas trees on a pile at the Hamilton County Recycling Center on Crabtree Road on Monday, Dec. 28, 2015, in the Middle Valley community near Chattanooga, Tenn. Because Christmas tree collection dates will vary from place to place, residents must have trees set out no later than Saturday, Jan. 20, to ensure collection.

Only real trees are being accepted, and ornaments and lights should be removed prior to drop-off. There is no disposal fee for trees dropped off by non-commercial residents of the city.

The city is once again hosting its annual Tree recycling program where undecorated trees can be disposed of quickly. Trees must be at the curbside by 7:00 a.m.

But those trees will end up in the landfill along with the approximate 210,000 tons - that's 420 million pounds - of waste we put into the Laubscher Meadows landfill in Vanderburgh County every year.
