Starting now through Jan. 10, the Birmingham Zoo has a designated tree drop area for visitors and residents to recycle their Christmas Trees.

This year will mark the 11th year that the Birmingham Zoo, City of Mountain Brook, visitors and residents have worked together to recycle Christmas Trees. The zoo receives hundreds of trees every year, according to a press release. The trees are chipped, shredded and made into mulch that is then spread throughout the zoo grounds to control runoff and erosion.

Trees of any shape or size are accepted. All donated trees should be natural and not artificial. Trees should also be clean and free of garlands or other decorations.

For more information, visit the Birmingham Zoo website.
