If you’re like my neighbors, you’ve had your Christmas tree up since before Halloween. I drove by at 4am and they already had their tree outside(PS-not stalking them I was driving into work). I will leave my tree up until this weekend. I get it though, if you’ve had it up for two months, you’re probably sick of it and want to get rid of it RIGHT NOW! Metro Public Works has set up drop-off locations for Nashville residents to dispose of their Christmas trees at parks and recreations centers across the county. The trees are turned into mulch. Trees must be cleaned of all ornaments, lights, wire, string and other decor. No artificial trees are accepted.
The drop-off program will run from December 26 to February 17.
Locations for drop-offs are below OR you could drop off your tree at The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald so the elephants can play with them, its fun to watch that!
