AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Thurmond Lake wants your Christmas trees after you're finished with them this holiday season.

They will start recycling the trees Dec. 21. The trees will be collected through Jan. 7, 2016 at Riverside Middle School in Evans.

Recycled Christmas trees will be submerged trees around fishing piers at Thurmond Lake to improve fishing habitat. Additional trees will be staged at select ramps around the lake to be used by the public.
