Verona residents looking to dispose of their old Christmas trees are encouraged to do so through Allegheny County’s recycling program.

Trees can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to dusk at nine regional county parks through Jan. 14.

Verona Chamber of Commerce officials said the borough’s annual tree burning event was stopped years ago, and the county’s recycling program is more environmentally friendly.

Tree recycling locations are as follows:

Boyce Park: Soccer fields parking lot

Deer Lakes Park: Veterans Shelter parking lot

Harrison Hills Park: Parking lot at intersection of Chipmunk Drive and Cottontail Drive

Hartwood Acres Park: Mansion parking lot

North Park: Swimming pool parking lot

Round Hill Park: Alfalfa Shelter parking lot

Settlers Cabin Park: Wave pool parking lot

South Park: Wave pool parking lot

White Oak Park: Chestnut Shelter parking lot

Murrysville: Windstream building, 4792 Old William Penn Highway. Murrysville-Export Rotary Club will accept trees at the parking lot from 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., Jan. 5 and 12.

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.
