Christmas Tree Recycling Program

MONTGOMERY - During the up and coming holidays, citizens throughout Montgomery are encouraged to seek innovative ways of improving and protecting our environment.  According to the Executive Director, Susan Carmichael, Montgomery Clean City Commission we will be applying multiple uses to this year's Christmas tree donations.  From fish habitats to stream erosion prevention to landscape beautification and food for the elephants, we can promote the health of our ecosystem as well as prevent an estimated 25,000 trees from ever finding their way to our city's landfill and roadsides.

On December twenty seventh and January third, Montgomery Clean City Commission and the Montgomery Sanitation Department will be hosting the annual event, "Recycle the Spirit - Bring One for the Chipper."  All the mulch from the trees will be used for food and composting.

Recycle your tree this year and get your neighbors involved in this very important effort.  When disposing of your tree at any of the cities thirteen  free Saturday trash pick up locations from 9:00 to 3:30, be sure to remove all tree stands, nails, ornaments, lights and tinsel.  We appreciate your contributions!
