This is old info but it should be the same.
Quoting this article from last year for the following info:
In Bartlett, residents can simply place their trees on the curb on their regular pickup day. It’s important to remove all ornaments and decorations, even strands of tinsel. Failure to do so means the city won’t put the tree through the chipper.
Jones Mulch or Nature’s Earth contracts with the city to chop up the discarded Christmas trees along with other municipal wood trimmings, such as trimmed tree limbs. The resulting mulch goes onto the city’s flowerbeds as needed.
Lakelanders can put their trees curbside as well if the trees aren’t over four feet tall. People who have towering trees don’t need to feel excluded, though: The city accepts larger Christmas trees as long as they are cut into pieces no more than four feet long.
Arlington outsources its solid waste and refuse collection to WastePro, based in Southaven, Miss. Like Bartlett and Lakeland’s municipal programs, WastePro also accepts live trees left on the curb for pickup, but the size can be up to eight feet tall.
Those who had live Christmas trees this year also have the option to help Memphis Botanic Garden with their recycled live Christmas trees. People can take their trees to The Yard (a mulch yard) at 1735 Thomas just off of Covington Pike and Pleasant View weekdays 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays 7 a.m.-2 p.m. (closed on New Year’s Day). Be sure to mention Memphis Botanic Garden when you drop it off, and they will donate $5 to the Memphis Botanic Garden and recycle your tree into mulch.
