Chicago Christmas Tree Recycling


Christmas Tree Recycling begins 
January 2nd.

Last year 18,000 trees were recycled in Chicago keeping more than 600,000 pounds of organic material from rotting away in our landfills. Pretty impressive stuff. Now let’s blow that number away in 2016. Drop off your Christmas Tree for recycling at 24 locations citywide Jan 2-16, and kick off the new year in sustainable style. Thanks for participating. It matters.

Get your Free Mulch! 

Another benefit of Christmas Tree recycling is free mulch! Mulch helps regulate moisture, provides nutrients to soil as it breaks down, and keeps weeds at bay. Free mulch made from Chicago Christmas Trees will be available to all Chicago residents from Jan 11 – 16 at these six locations. Bring your own bag or container to carry your mulch home.
