Once Santa and his reindeer have headed home and Christmas tree needles are scattered on the floor, it is time to toss the once fresh-smelling tree. The City of Memphis Storm Water Program wants to remind you to recycle your Christmas trees.
The City of Memphis Solid Waste Management Department will provide curbside pickup of live Christmas trees beginning Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. You may put your Christmas trees, minus stands, lights, ornaments and tinsel, at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the ninth for pickup throughout the week. All collected trees will be recycled into mulch and compost.
You may also drop off your Christmas trees at the Public Works Collins Yard facility or the Park Services Rodney Baber Facility.
