TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- As the Christmas holiday comes to an end some residents are now taking down the decorations.
That includes the Christmas tree.
The City of Tallahassee has set up four Christmas tree collection locations to allow residents to recycle their trees. The trees will be made into mulch and reused in the community.
"The parks and rec division has their own grinder, or chipper, and they'll actually bring it out here, set it up at the park, chip up the trees that are here and the mulch will be spread on the trails. And I've actually walked on some of the trails after that and it smells really Christmasy after they do that,” said Paul Hurst, Recycle Coordinator for the City of Tallahassee.
Locations includes Tom Brown Park, Myers Park, San Luis Mission Park and the Four Points by Sheraton.
All decorations should be removed from the tree. Residents may also leave trees at the curb during their normal pick up days.
