Christmas Tree Recycling

Christmas Tree Recycling

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL - Don’t add to the trash problem piling up in Mobile - recycle your Christmas tree!

Keep Mobile Beautiful is collecting old Christmas Trees now through January 8. The trees will be ground into mulch for use by area gardeners.  Residents are encouraged to continue or begin a new Christmas family tradition of recycling their old tree rather than tossing it to the curb.

Trees may be delivered at any time to the recycling stations. However, Keep Mobile Beautiful volunteers will be on hand from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, December 28 & 29 and January 4 & 5 to assist recyclers with tree unloading.

Old Christmas trees may be delivered to any of the following locations:

1.      Parkway Plaza - 2655 Dauphin Island Parkway

2.      2501 Government Boulevard – next to Whataburger

3.      Wildwood Shopping Center - 4055 Cottage Hill west of Azalea

4.      Airport at University – behind the BP Station

5.      Westwood Plaza - Airport at Schillinger 

6.      MAWSS  Park Forest Center - Moffet at Forest Hill Drive  

Be a good recycler!  Before you turn your tree in for recycling - REMEMBER –

~ remove all lights                               ~ remove ornaments

~ remove metal or plastic stand          ~ remove plastic bags

~ remove tinsel                                    ~ remove garland

~ SORRY, BUT WE WILL NOT ACCEPT FLOCKED TREES

THE LAST DAY TO TURN IN A TREE IS Wednesday, JANUARY 8  !
