Two Arlington Locations to Accept Recycled Trees
After the holidays are over, residents and businesses are encouraged to recycle Christmas trees. Two free drop-off locations are available from Dec. 26, 2012 through Jan. 12, 2013:
4949 S. Cooper St.
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily
Arlington Sanitary Landfill
800 Mosier Valley Road
7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday through Saturday
Please do not take Christmas trees to the leaf recycling drop-off sites.
Free mulch from the trees will be available to residents at the landfill in the spring for gardens and landscapes.
Before you recycle your Christmas tree:
- Remove lights, ornaments and tree stands, including wooden stands and nails.
- Do not place the tree in a plastic bag.
- Flocked trees are acceptable for recycling.
Trees placed curbside will only be collected for trash. Trees taller than 6’ must be cut in half for trash pick-up.
