LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Now that Christmas is over, ‘tis the season to recycle live trees at one of three Louisville "tree-cycling" centers.
Recycling Center – East District, 595 N. Hubbards Lane
Recycling Center – Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway
Waste Reduction Center – 636 Meriwether Ave.
All three locations are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. December 27, 28 and 29 and January 3, 4 and 5.
People taking their live trees to the sites on Hubbards Lane and Dixie Highway are encouraged to bring containers so they can take home fresh evergreen mulch created from their trees. This type of mulch is performs particularly well for acid-loving plants such as azaleas and rhododendrons. (Mulching is not available at the Meriwether Avenue location.)
Christmas tree vendors can recycle their unsold trees only on Thursday, December 27 at the Hubbards Lane location.
Also, beginning Thursday, December 27, people who live in the Urban Services District may deposit their trees and greenery curbside on their regular yard waste collection day. People who live outside the Urban Services District should check with their private waste haulers to find out whether tree pickup service is available and when it begins.
