The Centre Region Council of Governments will offer free Christmas tree collection and recycling beginning next week, according to a press release.

Residential customers in Benner, College, Ferguson, Harris and Patton townships can put their trees out on normal collection days Jan. 5-9. The trees will be taken to the State College Compost Facility and processed into mulch, the release said.

After Jan. 9, trees will be collected as part of normal trash pickup. College Township crews will collect trees for recycling through early February.
