Looking for info on recycling your tree in January 2021? Click here to read this year’s blog!

The hol­i­days are over and the dec­o­ra­tions are com­ing down. If that makes you sad, think about the new life that could come from your tree! By tak­ing your tree to one of the many drop-off loca­tions below, you are keep­ing trees out of land­fills and giv­ing them a new purpose.

No mat­ter where you recy­cle, please make sure to remove all tin­sel, orna­ments, and lights! Do not tie your tree up with string or any oth­er netting.
