Recycle your Christmas trees, Pittsburgh

 In Blog, Trees

PLEASE NOTE: This blog post is from 2018. The City of Pittsburgh has changed its recycling locations in 2019. To see the new list of locations, please visit this post.

Now that the hol­i­day sea­son is behind us, it’s time to think about how to recy­cle Christ­mas trees! There are options for res­i­dents of the City of Pitts­burgh as well as Alleghe­ny Coun­ty on the list below. If you live out­side of Alleghe­ny Coun­ty, please con­tact your city, town­ship, or bor­ough office to inquire about recy­cling Christ­mas trees.

In order to recy­cle Christ­mas trees, all lights, orna­ments, tin­sel, and stands need to be removed. Trees in plas­tic bags or net­ting will not be accept­ed. City of Pitts­burgh offi­cials have warned that trees left on the curb­side will be sent to a land­fill with oth­er waste and not recycled.
