CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING
During the holiday months, 25% more waste is produced and sent to local landfills. ESD would like to remind our citizens to practice the 3R’s of minimizing waste during the holidays:
- Reduce waste by buying in bulk, send email greeting cards, give gift certificates or club memberships, use gift bags instead of wrapping paper and buy rechargeable batteries.
- Resuse materials such as cardboard boxes, wrappings and ribbons, and create crafts from items to be discarded.
- Recycle what you can. The city of Tuscaloosa Environmental Services department collects aluminum and steel cans, newspaper, plastics #1 & #2, magazines, recyclable paper, plastic bags and cardboard at 7 convenient drop-off sites around the city.
