Christmas Tree Recycling Available
Christmas tree recycling is available at the Regional Landfill and County collection sites.
Christmas tree recycling will be available at County convenience centers from Thursday, December 26, through Saturday, January 18, and at the Regional Landfill during normal working hours throughout January. The Landfill is open from 8:00 AM until 4:15 PM, Monday through Saturday but will be closed on December 24-25 and January 1, 2020.
Recycled Christmas trees are taken by the Fish and Wildlife Service, or similar entities like the National Parks Service, to be used as fish habitats. If they are not needed, trees are shredded for mulch. Recycling gives your Christmas tree a second life.
