TULSA - The old tradition of piling up dozens of Christmas trees and holding a giant bonfire has become a thing of the past in Tulsa.
Besides being a bit wasteful, the bonfires sometimes posed a fire danger.
But since Tulsa's new Green Waste policy went into effect, the city has made getting rid of the old tree as easy as hauling it to the curb.
The tree has to be six feet or shorter in height, or cut into pieces no larger than six feet.
Crews will collect them through the end of January, at no cost -- and no white sticker required.
People can also take trees to the Southwood Nursery at 91st and Lewis, or to the Mr. Murph location at 1205 N. Peoria, just south of Pine Street.
They also have the option of taking them to the city's Green Waste site, on E. 56th Street North just east of Mingo.
Regardless of which method you choose, you will need to remove all decorations from the tree -- including lights, ornaments, and tinsel.
