Posted: Updated:

(WJBK) -- Now that Christmas 2012 is behind us, you might be wondering what to do with your Christmas tree?  The Oakland County Parks and Recreation offers 11 park locations to make holiday cleanup easy and environmentally friendly by offering to recycle Christmas trees.

Christmas tree recycling starts December 26th and is scheduled to run through January 13, 2013, seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Recycling will take place at Addison Oaks in Leonard; Catalpa Oaks in Southfield; Glen Oaks Golf Course in Farmington Hills; Groveland Oaks near Holly; Independence Oaks in Clarkston; Lyon Oaks in Lyon Township; Oakland County Market in Waterford; Orion Oaks in Orion Township; Red Oaks Golf Course in Madison Heights; Springfield Oaks in Davisburg; and White Lake Oaks Golf Course in White Lake.  

Officials say tree drop-off is free but all decorations- - including plastic, tinsel and wire must be removed from trees prior to arrival. Large quantities from commercial lots will not be accepted. The program is self-service; assistance in removing trees from vehicles is unavailable. Processed trees for compost and wood chips are made available to the public free of charge in 2013.

    When he's not slaying three-headed beasts with his olive-wood club, Hercules carves out time for the little people. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson treated fans from the Harlem Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC to an advance screening of his new film. I caught up with the larger-than-life action hero after the big surprise.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
