ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The county will start mulching Christmas trees Saturday.

With Christmas over, Lee County is recycling trees and creating free mulch for residents.

The county will also keep some trees in tact for people with ponds looking to create a wildlife habitat.

Lee County won't pick the trees up, they're asking people not to leave them on the curb. If you bring it to the landfill, you won't leave empty handed.

"The Forestry Department is going to gave us an opportunity to give away seeds for flowers and vegetables that we'll give you in return for bringing your tree here," said Lee County Public Works Director Mike Sistrunk.

Trees turned into mulch will be available free to the community after the end of the month. Public Works says they'll collect trees through the end of January.

The landfill is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 to 5:00.
