Need to discard your Christmas tree?
Johnston County residents may carry their discarded Christmas trees to any solid-waste convenience site or to the county landfill at 680 County Home Road, Smithfield.
Residents with a solid-waste decal can discard their trees for free. Other residents can expect to pay $5.
The trees should be free of lights, ornaments and other decorations. The county will grind them into mulch.
