TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- It won't be long before those beautiful, evergreen Christmas trees will have to come down.
Do you have plans for yours?
The city of Tupelo hopes you will recycle them.
All you have to do is drop them off and the city will take it from there.
For more than a decade, Tupelo has accepted Christmas trees.
The program is considered a successful one.
Keep Tupelo Beautiful Coordinator Sherri Cochran says they will once again be accepting those trees as long as they are live ones.
"We use them to build fish habitats. We don't take artificial trees-only natural trees. All the ornaments and lights have to be off," Cochran said.
You can drop off trees after Christmas at five parks which are Ballard, Hancock, Theron Nichols, Hancock and the dog park at Veterans.
You can also drop off your recyclable cardboard based items at those locations.
