It's an age-old holiday question: toss the Christmas tree the day after — or leave it up until early 2019?

For Houstonians opting for the former, starting Wednesday, December 26, trees can be disposed of at one of the city's free-drop off recycling sites.

Those who receive trash pick-up from the City of Houston can place trees on the curb. However, that option is only available on designated tree waste days.

The City of Houston offers this friendly — and apparently necessary — reminder: Anyone tossing a Christmas tree should first remove the lights and ornaments.

If curbside tree removal isn't an option, the City of Houston offers these recycling sites:

9003 N. Main St.; 77022

14400 Sommermeyer St,; 77041

5565 Kirkpatrick Blvd.; 77028

5100 Sunbeam St.; 77033

10785 SW Freeway; 77074

2240 Central St.; 77017
