Residents who drop off a tree for recycling will receive a free Desert Willow or Afghan Pine seedling in return. Remember, only clean, non-flocked trees without decoration will be accepted.
Saturday, January 5th 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.:
Saturday, January 12th 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.:
Trees will also be accepted Monday-Saturday (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) at the Collection Center at 7001 Ayers Street.
Residents who do not have the ability or time to haul a tree off themselves, they can also be collected during your normally scheduled brush pickup. Check the calendar here. Be warned, if you set a tree or any other bulky items out too soon ahead of collection time your could face a fine from the city.
The city will have mulch made from Christmas tree recycling available free of charge beginning in mid-February.
