Recycle your tree in 2021
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:
