Local Christmas Tree Recycling Programs

After all the excitement of the holiday season has subsided and we start to get our homes back in order, some of us face the challenge of what to do with natural Christmas trees. By participating in a Christmas tree recycling program that grinds trees into compost,

we help keep our community and our Earth green.

Each city requires that trees be properly prepared, including the removal of supports, ornaments, tinsel, electrical wiring and lights. Flocked trees are handled different in each city. Please check your city’s website for any updated information.
