Live Greenery Recycling Offered at City of Tuscaloosa's Curry Environmental Facility

Live Greenery Recycling Offered at City of Tuscaloosa's Curry Environmental Facility

Since the program started 13 years ago, over 1,200 trees have been recycled.

The City of Tuscaloosa will accept live Christmas trees and other greenery for recycling between Tuesday Dec. 26 and Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018.

During this free drop-off event, citizens and businesses can drop off live Christmas trees, wreaths and garland to be recycled. The drop-off will be located at the City’s Curry Environmental Services facility at 3440 Kauloosa Ave. 

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.
