The holidays are coming to an end and many people need to get rid of the live Christmas tree and lights.
The Rapid City Solid Waste Department set up several disposal sites throughout Rapid City to take care of those items .
Christmas trees, free of lights, ornaments and plastic bags may be dropped off through January 31st at the West Boulevard North Yard Waste site, as well as the ones at Fairmont Boulevard and Fitzgerald Stadium.
The waste department is encouraging the public to use the new 24 hour lighted and secured "Citizens Campus" on South Highway 79.
Unwanted lights may also be disposed of by using the recycle bins at the designated locations or by placing them in your blue bin.
Trees, branches and yard waste may still be brought directly to the landfill Monday through Saturday.
