TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - If you’re one of those people who likes to keep your tree up for days, or even weeks, after Christmas, listen up.

The City of Tucson will not collect Christmas trees from curbs and alleys, and reminds residents to remove everything before dropping one off, including the stand, lights, ornaments, wire and tinsel.

Recycled trees will be mulched and used for composting.
