Christmas Tree Recycling Runs Through January 13th

Official City of Coral Gables Notice

From cardboard to Christmas trees, Keep Coral Gables Beautiful makes it easy for our residents to recycle. Residents can take their flattened cardboard boxes to a container located at the War Memorial Youth Center now through Jan. 13, 2023.

Beginning on Dec. 27, 2022, the City of Coral Gables is offering free Christmas tree recycling to Coral Gables residents. Recycling your tree helps to preserve landfill space and provides the opportunity to repurpose this valuable resource as mulch and ground cover in natural park and planting areas throughout the community. So that we can provide the most efficient service possible, please observe the collection schedule and placement requirements below.

Collection Requirements

  • Place tree out after 5:00 P.M. the day before your scheduled tree collection day specified. (Click here to see the full schedule and details)
  • Keep tree separate from your trash/yard waste pile. If the tree is placed in the trash pile with other debris, it won’t be recycled.
  • Remove tree stand, lights, ornaments, tinsel, and other decorations before placing out for collection.
  • Do not bag your tree or place flocked trees out for collection.
