HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The City of Hattiesburg has opened their four Christmas tree recycle centers.

Trees can be dropped off at the recycle center at the entrance to Kamper Park on Hardy St., Highland Cemetery on West 7th St. behind the office, Duncan Lake on the corner of James and Tipton St. and at Fire Station #8 on Lamar Blvd near Petro Nissan. Signs will be placed at each location to show where to put the trees.

Hattiesburg Arborist Andy Parker says to make sure all tree stands, lights, and ornaments are removed from the tree. He also advises residents to take advantage of the recycling program and not put their tree on the side of the road for pick-up. He says by recycling the trees they are able to save valuable land Fill space and reduce illegal dumping.

The trees will be chipped into mulch and made available free to the public at Highland Cemetery toward the end of January.
