Shelby County is opening a Christmas tree recycling center beginning December 22nd (just in case you get sick of Christmas early) and running through January 11th in the south parking lot of the Shelby County Showplace Arena (105 Germantown Rd.).
Natural trees, wreaths, and other greenery must be free of lights and decorations. The greenery will be turned into mulch that citizens can pick up in the spring during county Earth Day events.
“We want citizens to take advantage of this free service. It will help prevent many of these trees and other items from being dumped along the roadsides,” said Tom Needham, Director of Shelby County Public Works.
This is the 14th year for the recycling program.
