For the third year, the City of Prattville will continue our program of recycling Christmas trees through our partnership with Davey Tree Company.

"This service will benefit our community in multiple ways," said Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. "Not only will citizens be able to dispose of their trees in an eco-friendly way, but it will also serve to decrease the amount of debris hauled to the landfill. We are very fortunate to have such a great relationship with Alabama Power and Davey Tree Company."

This service is being provided free of charge. The recycled material will be utilized by our Urban Management Department in mulching our landscaping all over the City during the coming year.

The Christmas tree drop-off location is the Recycling Center located at 122 Ridgewood Road (across from Mac Gray Park). Tree collection days will be Wednesday, December 26, 2012 through Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., which are normal Recycling Center hours (Wednesday through Saturday each week). Trees must be free of all lights, ornaments, tinsel, and any other decoration.
