Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Recycling your tree helps to preserve landfill space and provides the opportunity to repurpose this valuable resource as mulch and ground cover in natural parks and planting areas throughout the community. So that we can provide the most efficient service possible, please observe the following collection schedule and placement requirements.
