Wondering what to do with your Christmas tree after the holiday? The City of Tuscaloosa has stepped up to help with a Greenery Recycling Program.

Your Christmas tree will find new life as mulch for various projects in our city. Trees and greenery can be dropped off at the Curry Environmental Services facility at 3340 Kauloosa Avenue in Tuscaloosa beginning December 26th and ending January 14th.

Here's more from an official press release:

Since the program started 13 years ago, over 1,200 trees have been recycled. Once collected, the trees are used as wood mulch in various projects in the community.

In order to be recycled, all trees, wreaths and garland must be stripped of lights and decorations. Plug-in holiday light strands can be recycled on-site in marked containers. The lights will be included in the City’s electronic recycling program and will continue to be collected year-round.
