How to Recycle your Christmas Tree

December 21, 2018

 

Once Jan. 1 rolls around, you’re probably looking to dispose of your Christmas tree. If you purchased a real tree, there are plenty of eco-friendly options for disposal.

 

Christmas Tree Recycling Preparation

  • Remove any ornaments, lights, tinsel or other decorations from the tree, as well as the stand.

  • Use Earth911’s Recycling Directory to find treecycling programs in your area.

  • Put a tarp under the tree before you haul it to the curb or your car to prevent needles from shedding on the floor.

  • If the tree is being picked up at the curb, you may need to cut large trees (taller than 5 feet) in half so they will fit in the truck.

 

Why Recycle Christmas Trees

  • Many cities will collect trees at the curb for the two weeks following Christmas, making treecycling a convenient option

  • Many cities chip or shred trees to produce mulch, which is often provided free of charge to citizens for their gardens

  • Christmas trees placed in landfills produce methane when they decompose or are incinerated
