FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Broward County residents trying to get rid of their Christmas trees can drop them off at area parks to be recycled.

The county says more than 10,000 trees were recycled through the program last year, instead of ending up in landfills. The trees are chipped and used for park landscaping.

Officials say the trees must be decoration-free. Artificial trees will not be accepted.
