Christmas Tree Recycling

After the holidays are over, residents and businesses are encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees.

Two free drop-off locations are available from beginning Dec. 26, 2020, through Jan. 11, 2021:

North Arlington

Arlington Sanitary Landfill
800 Mosier Valley Road
7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. - Monday through Saturday

South Arlington

Calloway's Nursery
4940 S. Cooper St.

Christmas trees should be loaded into one of the containers on the north side of the building during business hours only. Please do not place trees next to the containers.

Recycling Your Christmas Tree:

• Remove lights, ornaments and tree stands, including wooden stands and nails.
• Do not place the tree in a plastic bag.
• No flocked trees please.

Trees placed curbside will be collected for trash, not recycling. Trees taller than 6 feet must be cut in half for curbside trash pick-up.

Free mulch from the trees and leaves collected through the leaf drop-off locations will be available to Arlington residents at the landfill in the spring.
