When Christmas is over, trees can be turned to mulch by Hall County.

Residents can take their live Christmas tree and wreaths to any of Hall’s 12 compactor sites or the Hall County Recycling Center between Dec. 26 and Jan. 7. Decorations must be removed.

The compactors are open 7:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The recycling center is open 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. They are closed Christmas Day.

Oakwood residents can drop their trees at Allen and Railroad streets.

Gainesville residents can leave their trees at the curb for trash collectors.

Trees will be chipped into mulch, which can be picked up for free at the Hall County Landfill from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting.
