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.

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
