ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Christmas clean up should be pretty simple again this year.  The City of Albany plans to recycle Christmas trees; and its as simple as leaving it where you put your garbage.

Albany is once again putting Christmas trees to good use throughout the year. The trees left at the street or in your alley with the other yard debris, will be turned into mulch.

"We will send our regular crew by to pick them up and we're taking those tress out to the Maple Hill inert facilities and we're grinding those trees up," said Solid Waste Supervisor Daniel Whigham.

The leftover mulch is then available to the community free of charge. Public Works cautions unlike garbage that's picked up every week, the trees are picked up with yard debris just twice a month, so it may take some time, but they'll get it.

They say once they recycled a Christmas tree that wasn't put out until July.
