St. Charles County, Missouri – Instead of trashing your natural tree after the Yuletide celebration, consider recycling it as one last holiday gift that will enhance our environment. To make recycling natural trees more convenient, the St. Charles County Division of Environmental Health and Protection partners with several area municipalities to present a free collection for residents at various locations throughout our community, including the County-operated Recycle Works locations in St. Charles and Wentzville.
