Are you looking for something to do with your Christmas tree?

Shelby County in conjunction with the city of Chelsea, the city of Pelham, and Propst Alabaster LLC is offering a Christmas tree recycling program at five designated areas in Shelby County. The program is going on through January 4, 2014.

You can drop off trees at Heardmont Park on Cahaba Valley Road on U.S. Highway 119, Chelsea City Hall in Chelsea, Ray Building off Highway 70 in Columbiana, Propst Alabaster LL (former Colonial Properties Alabaster) located at the end of AmStar Theatre parking lot and Pelham City Park located off U.S. 31 and 119 entrance in Pelham.
