Holiday Wrap-up: Recycle your tree

Give your Christmas tree the proper holiday send-off. Rather than toss it in the trash, recycle it. You’ll be doing our local landfills a big favor.

Bring your Christmas tree to any of the locations listed below at the scheduled days and times. Your tree will be mulched for free.

Please remove all tinsel, lights, tree stands and nails. Flocked trees will be accepted at all locations. There is a limit of five trees per vehicle—except at the locations noted below where loads exceeding 5 trees will be accepted.
