The Fort Dodge Forestry Department will offer its Operation Merry Mulch again this year.
The service was developed to assist Fort Dodge residents in the disposal of their Christmas trees. It also complies with the state mandate prohibiting the landfilling of Christmas trees and other yard waste.
This year, trees can be dropped off at Oleson Park between Dec. 26 and Jan. 25 at the parking lot by the cabin. Stands, wire, nails and ornaments must be removed from the trees.
Trees will be chipped up during normal working hours.
The city will not pick up trees left on the curb side.
