Christmas Tree Recycling Locations
The holidays are over, but don't throw out that Christmas tree. Recycle it instead. Trees can be recycled through several participating Valley parks. Please remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel, metal and stands from Christmas Trees before bringing them to any of the recycling locations. Waste Management Facilities also accept trees for recycling.
