Pittsburgh, Recycle Your Christmas Tree in 2022

 In Blog, News

It’s Jan­u­ary, which means it’s time to take down those trees and set­tle into a new year. But don’t put your tree out on the curb! If you do, it will end up in a land­fill. Give it new life by tak­ing it to one of these loca­tions to be used as mulch. Please remove all lights, stands, orna­ments, and tin­sel before drop­ping off your tree.


Trees recy­cled in the City of Pitts­burgh will be chipped into mulch for res­i­dents to pick up (for free) in the spring. Mulch pick­up dates have yet to be deter­mined. City of Pitts­burgh res­i­dents, you can take your tree to the fol­low­ing dropoff sites:
