FOX23 checked with Tulsa's Green-Waste mulching site to understand the rules of disposing this year's ice storm debris and live Christmas trees.

We found out the city of Tulsa will be offering complimentary collection of live Christmas Trees during the months of December and January.

No green-waste stickers will be required during this time.

The city told FOX23 any Tulsa resident has the option of either placing their tree on the curb on their primary collection day or taking it to the city's Green Waste site from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Sunday at no cost.

If you choose to leave your Christmas tree at the curb there are a few specifications.

The city told FOX23 the Christmas tree must be no longer than 6 feet in length.

If the tree is longer than the requirement, they ask you cut the tree into 6 foot or shorter lengths.

You must also remove all lights, ornaments and tinsel from the tree.

Storm debris can also be either picked up at the curb on the resident's primary collection day or dropped off at the Green Waste site, located at 10401 E. 56th St. North.

The city asks if you leave your storm debris at the curb to bundle the limbs and branches no bigger than 2 feet across and 4 feet long.

If you'd like to recycle some of your Christmas wrapping paper or boxes that have accumulated during the holiday, check out Mr. Murph's Unboxing Campaign.

There are more than 100 Mr. Murph's bin locations in Tulsa and we've provided a link so you can find the closest location to you.

Just click on the link attached to this story and recycle away.

Mr. Murph's recycled more than 4,000,000 pounds of Christmas materials last year and they want to beat their record this year.
