BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) - Residents in Beaufort County can take Christmas trees to any County Convenience Center during normal center hours or put them in yard waste bins.
County yard waste is converted to boiler fuel for energy generation.

Officials are asking to please not take them to the old locations in Lady's Island or Bluffton, that will be considered illegal dumping.
