Natural Christmas trees can be recycled and made into useful mulch or compost. The Department encourages residents to recycle Christmas trees and save valuable landfill space. Christmas trees must be prepared for recycling, so please remove all decorations, tinsel, lights, and tree stands.

Flocked trees cannot be recycled and must be disposed of with regular municipal solid waste.
