The deadline to dispose of live Christmas trees in some North Hills is quickly approaching.

Monday is the last day trees can be dropped off in North Park. Trees are being collected from 8 a.m. to dusk in the parking lot of the swimming pool and will be turned into mulch for use in the parks.

Franklin Park

Jan. 14 also is the last day for the borough’s two-week tree recycling program. Residents need to place trees to the curb by 6 a.m.

Marshall Township

Residents can place their trees out for pickup on their regular trash collection days through Wednesday, Jan. 16. Trees must be cut into 4-foot sections.

Through Friday, Jan. 18, residents can place their trees to the curb on any day for pickup by the public works department, which will chip them for mulch. The mulch will be piled in the parking lot of the Lorraine F. Rogers Memorial Soccer Field in the spring for use by town residents.

Between Jan. 21 and Jan. 31, residents can place trees to the curb on their regular trash days for free pickup. People who live along rural roads in the town can place their trees out for pickup throughout the month.

Residents in Bradford Wood, West View and Ross can place their trees out to the curb for free pickup on their regular trash collection day.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
