SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Now that the holiday season is coming to a close, it's time to start thinking about what to do with that Christmas tree.

Every year, the City of San Diego Environmental Services Department hosts its Christmas Tree Recycling Program .

The program begins December 26 and lasts until January 23 (for those of us who like to hold onto that Christmas magic a bit longer.)

The city says both green and flocked trees are accepted. For greenery, curbside and drop-off sites, tree stands, bags, netting, lights, ornaments and decorations must be removed.

No artificial trees are accepted at the sites.
