What to do with Christmas Trees

Your unflocked, natural trees should be composted!

  • Cut your tree into pieces no larger than 3 feet long and put them in your green compost cart (no flocked trees). Please make sure your carts aren’t overflowing.
  • Bring your tree to Quakenbush Resource Recovery Park for recycling.
