Recycling of holiday trees


About the program 

Residential customers who wish to recycle their natural holiday trees may bring them to one of several holiday tree drop off locations around the city. The trees are chipped and the resulting mulch is returned to the public at no charge through the  Materials Give Back Program  located on Ferrano Street near Colfax Street. 

City residents can also leave Christmas trees curbside on their designated refuse and recycling day. Trees do not have to be bagged.

Drop-off Locations

Beginning after Christmas and through the end of January, residents may drop their holiday tree for recycling at the following locations:
