Home Depot Assistant Manager Mark Bratton says the service is free of charge and conveniently located in the store’s parking lot.

“By our garden center, we’ve got a corral set up and it is open, so they can just bring it out and drop it off,” said Bratton.

All decorations and lights must be removed from the trees before being dropped off.
