Tucson 'treecycling'

Posted: Updated:

So far about 3500 people have hauled in their christmas trees to be recycled in tucson.

The City of Tucson has nine sites where you can drop off your trees to be chopped up into mulch.

They want to remind everyone, they only want the tree. Please clear off all holiday decorations, and the 'treecycle' sites will not process any other materials.

"And I do encourage people not to bring trash and cardboard and stuff to the tree sites and dump them, we're seeing that and we're not set up to collect that stuff at those sites," said Francis LSala from the City of Tucson.

Friday is the last day you can drop off your tree.
