Christmas is over – which means many are taking down their Christmas decorations. 

If you have a real Christmas tree, experts say it’s a good idea to get rid of it before it gets dry. 

Dried-out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in the house or garage. 

Here is a list of tree recycling locations around the KC Metro area.
