The city wants your Christmas tree
A new law that goes into effect Jan. I, 1994, will eliminate the need for commercial vehicle operators to have their commercial vehicles undergo dual inspections. The new inspection program, to be overseen by the Texas Dept, of Public Safety, will combine the U.S. Dept, of Transportation inspection with the State of Texas safety inspection.
Beginning January I inspections obtained at other than an official commercial Texas State Inspection Station will not be accepted.
Commercial motor vehicle means any self-propelled or towed vehicle
except a farm vehicle with a gross weight, registered weight or gross weight rating of less than 48,000 pounds used on a public highway to transport passengera or property when: the vehicle or combination of vehicle has a gross weight, registered or gross weight rating in excess of 26,000 pounds; or the vehicle is designed to transport more than 15 people including the driver, or the vehicle is used to transport an amount of hazardous materials requiring placarding under the federal Hazardous Materials Transportation Act

The program saves valuable landfill space and provides free water-saving mulch for residents and for city parks and open spaces.
An area in the swimming pool parking lot will be designated as the site to receive the trees.
About 1,143 trees were coverted to mulch last Christmas. Approximately 6,000 Christmas trees have been mulched during the last six years of the program.
Please remove nails and other metal fasteners from the tree's trunk to protect employees and the chippers used to convert the trees into mulch.
