Drop Off Items for Operation Christmas Clean-Up on Saturday, January 9th

If you still have an abundance of holiday-related recyclables laying around, tomorrow is your big opportunity to offload them in a way that is friendly for the environment and mega convenient for you.

Load up your real Christmas tree (no artificial trees please), flattened cardboard boxes, dead batteries, and old electronics, and drop them off at the Madison City School stadium tomorrow, January 9th, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

This second annual “Christmas Clean Up” event is brought to you by the Solid Waste Disposal Authority (SWDA) and the Recycling Alliance of North Alabama (RANA) in partnership with the City of Huntsville, City of Madison, Madison County, and Operation Green Team.

How to Drop Off Items

Simply pull up, pop your trunk, and allow team members to grab your items to be recycled. If you’d like to get out of your car to interact and assist a team member, please wear a mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19. 


  • Please make sure all lights and ornaments are removed from the trees as those items can cause machinery issues at the recycling center.
  • Also, please dispose of wrapping paper and other packaging items before recycling your cardboard boxes.

Madison City Schools is located at 211 Celtic Drive near HWY 20 about a mile from Wal-Mart.

And while you’re over on that side of town…

While you’re over in that direction, take a spin through downtown Madison which is about a half-mile from the stadium! Main Street Cafe and Old Black Bear both open at 11 a.m., so plan ahead and place a pick-up order to grab on your way home. Take a spin through some of the local shops on Main Street if you haven’t before. Most open at 10 a.m. 

If you live closer to Huntsville, there will be a recycling drop-off location there as well at Joe Davis Stadium during the same hours.
