Allegheny County is collecting Christmas trees to reuse as mulch for nine county parks. County Spokeswoman Megan Dardanell says they collected about 150 trees last year, and they expect to collect more this year. Trees that are stripped of decorations can be dropped off at swimming pool parking lots in Boyce, North, Settler’s Cabin and South parks between 8am and 3:30pm until January 22. Dardanell says it’s an easy way to be environmentally friendly, and it helps both the tax payers and county parks.
