For the fifth year, the City of Prattville will continue our program of recycling Christmas trees.

"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."

This service is being provided free of charge. The Urban Management Division of our Public Works Department will utilize this recycled material as mulch for our landscaping projects 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 Friday, December 26, 2014 through Saturday, January 10, 2015 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., which are normal Recycling Center hours (Monday - Saturday). Trees must be free of all lights, ornaments, tinsel, and any other decoration. If you are unable to drop off your Christmas tree at the Recycling Center, please place it at the curb on your normal Residential Yard Trash collection day and Sanitation will collect it for recycling.
