Where to Recycle Christmas Trees 2016

It’s time to rip down the holly, bright lights and recycle your tree.

Don’t throw your Christmas tree to the curb – it will go straight to the landfill. Instead, participate in the Streets Department’s Christmas Tree Recycling Program!

Make sure to remove all decorations and untie those trees before dropping off.
