HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Operation Christmas Clean Up took place at Joe W. Davis Stadium.
The Solid Waste Disposal Authority of the City of Huntsville and Operation Green Team came together to give the people of Huntsville a way to responsibly dispose of live Christmas trees, broken down cardboard boxes and electronics.
A member of Operation Green Team tells us exactly how the Christmas trees will be recycled and reused.
"We want to recycle, reuse and reduce as much as we possibly can with any type of item there is out there. So, when you get rid of your Christmas tree at the end of the season, instead of it going to the landfill, you can bring it to us, we can get it chipped up, made into mulch and it'll be used on city properties," said Brian Walker, Manager of Landscape Management, Operation Green Team.

Bring your hazardous household waste such as electronics, chemicals, oil, etc. to the Household Hazardous Waste Building at the Solid Waste Disposal Authority to dispose of them properly and keep the city clean.
