EUGENE, Ore. -- With the holidays officially over, it's time to recycle those Christmas trees and other items you don't need anymore. Here are some places you can take those trees and help nonprofits at the same time:

Boy Scout Troop 182 offers pickup for $10 on weekends between December 28 and January 19. It doesn’t take flocked or painted trees. Get more information on the Troop’s website.

McCornack Elementary School's fifth grade class is fundraising for a trip to Washington D.C. next summer. They will be picking up trees during the weekends following Christmas. They are asking for a $10 donation. Fill out the pick-up form online.

If you want to recycle your tree by yourself, Rexius (150 Highway 99, Eugene) and Lane Forest Products (2111 Prairie Rd., Eugene and 820 N. 42nd St., Springfield) accept green and flocked trees for a fee.

NextStep Recycling accepts functioning and non-functioning Christmas lights for recycling. Proceeds from the recycled lights go to a charity of NextStep’s choosing.
