grinding of the greens

Do not let your Christmas tree end up buried with the trash; recycle it through the annual Grinding of the Greens program offered by Keep the Midlands Beautiful!

Please remember to:

  • Remove the tree from the stand.
  • Remove all lights, tinsel, and ornaments from the tree.
  • Remove the tree from the bag, tarp, sheet, or other material used to hold it.
  • Remove any tags, strings, wires, or ties from the tree.
  • Drop off trees only. Wreaths, garland, and other greenery will not be accepted.

This program is for RESIDENTS only; growers and retailers must contact KMB prior to tree drop off.

 Bring your trees to the following locations between December 26, 2022, and January 19, 2023.
