Can I recycle Christmas trees?

Yes! But not in your blue bin or any alley dumpsters. The City usually hosts an annual holiday tree recycling program following Christmas day and running through the second week of January. Through this, trees can be dropped off at one of three parks for free or put out for bulk pickup. Wreaths and pine tinsel are not accepted. Please visit the Refuse Division’s Christmas Tree Recycling Page for locations and instructions. For year round Christmas tree recycling search here to find locations near you.

St. Louis residents recycle 61 lbs of material every minute, but we can still do better. Will you help us recycle even more?
