Where to Recycle Christmas Trees

Share via

Before recycling Christmas trees, carefully remove all ornaments, nails, tinsel, metal support rods and tree stands. Flocked or fire-proofed trees cannot be accepted for recycling. Place trees at the curb by 7 a.m. on the designated days, even though collection may take several days. For information, call the 24-hour Recycling Hot Line at 654-3935.
