What to do with that Christmas tree?

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

It's time to take down the lights and the decorations, and throw out that Christmas tree.

In Richmond County, Solid Waste will pick up customers' trees beginning in January.

If you have all decorations off the tree, it will be picked up on your first day of service.

If the tree is fake or still has decorations, it will be picked up on the second day.

Solid Waste will only pick up trees shorter than five feet tall. If your tree is taller, they ask you trim it into separate parts.

You can also drop your tree at the Richmond County Landfill at any time.

In Columbia County, you can drop off your tree at The Home Depot in Evans.

This Saturday, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., The Home Depot will be chipping and mulching the trees, and providing free mulch to customers.
