Christmas tree recycling in the District
You have two options for disposing of your old Christmas tree once the holidays are over.
Cut it up and place it in your organics cart
You can include your Christmas tree in your curbside pickup. To dispose of it curbside, please cut it into small pieces and place them inside your organics cart. Trees covered in artificial snow will not be accepted.
Take it to a tree-chipping event
The fastest and easiest way to recycle your Christmas tree is to take it to one of the many tree-chipping fundraisers held across the North Shore in the early days of January 2023.
Do you have old lights you want to dispose of?
Strands of old Christmas lights can be recycled for free at any LightRecycle drop off location.
