Christmas tree pick up, recycling, disposal and more.

We understand that the holiday season can be hectic, and the last thing you want to deal with is figuring out how to get rid of your tree. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you properly dispose of or recycle your Christmas tree.

First things first, before you get rid of your tree, make sure to remove all decorations, lights, and garlands. These materials can cause problems for recycling facilities. Once you’ve taken care of that, you can choose from the following options to dispose of your tree responsibly.

First, let’s talk about how to recycle your real Christmas tree.

1. Composting:

If you have a compost bin or pile, you can cut up your real Christmas tree into smaller pieces and add it to your compost. This will not only help reduce the amount of waste going into landfills but also provide nutrient-rich content for your compost.

2. Curbside recycling:

Many local towns offer curbside pickup services for Christmas trees. Check with your local waste management or recycling center to see if they provide this service. The trees are usually chipped or composted, so be sure to follow their guidelines for disposal.

3. Mulching:

You can also recycle your Christmas tree into mulch for your garden or yard. Simply remove all decorations and lights, and use a woodchipper or a local mulching service to turn your tree into mulch. This will not only help keep your plants and trees healthy but also prevent weeds from growing.

Now, let’s talk about how to recycle your artificial Christmas tree.

1. Donation:

If your artificial tree is still in good condition, consider donating it to a local charity, community center, school, or church. They can use the tree for future holiday events or give it to someone in need of festive decorations.

2. Recycling:

Certain recycling facilities can handle artificial trees, so check with your local recycling center or waste disposal facility to see if they offer this service. Follow their instructions for drop-off or collection.
