BE GREEN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON and recycle your natural Christmas tree with the city. Six free drop-off locations
Be green this holiday season and recycle your natural Christmas tree with the city. Six free drop-off locations are open from Dec. 26, 2022 to Jan. 8, 2023, to let you dispose of your tree at no charge. The Parks Division will mulch the trees and use the material along the city greenways and trails. Approximately 450 trees were recycled last year.
Trees should be natural and free of all ornaments, decorations, and stands. Wreaths, tree limbs, synthetic trees, bushes, and shrubs are not accepted for recycling. Contribute your tree and help keep the city beautiful throughout the trails system.
