Before you toss out that Christmas tree, you do have a kinder, greener way to get rid of it.


Drop off the tree and watch it turn into mulch.

The cost? Five bucks. But the proceeds go to donations for youth sports.

Colorado Springs has 5 locations to drop off your tree. On 30th Street and Garden of the Gods, by MCI. Memorial Park, Sky Sox Stadium, Cottonwood Park, and at Rocky Top Resources on East Las Vegas.
