Christmas is about over. For participants, there's an 20-percent chance that the tree in their living room is real, according to the American Christmas Tree Association, which is a real thing.

For those in Louisville, the city is offering to turn that tree into mulch.

The service will be offered starting Thursday at two sites—the East District Recycling Center (595 N. Hubbards Lane) and the Southwest Government Center (7219 Dixie Hwy.) 

To take away mulch, residents have to bring a tree and their own container.

Urban Services District (the old city limits) residents will have curbside tree pick-up available—. (But, alas, no mulch.) Residents can also drop off trees at the Waste Reduction Center at 636 Meriwether Ave.)

The drop-offs and mulching services will be available Dec. 26-28 and Jan. 2-4.
