Give your Christmas tree the proper holiday send-off. Rather than toss it in the trash, recycle it. You’ll be doing our local landfills a big favor. Bring your Christmas tree to any of the locations listed below at the scheduled days and times. Your tree will be mulched for free.
Please remove all tinsel, lights, tree stands and nails. Flocked trees will be accepted at all locations. There is a limit of five trees per vehicle.
Christmas trees may be recycled for free at the North Area Recovery Station, 4450 Roseville Road on Saturday, January 4 and Sunday, January 5 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
This annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program is a partnership between Sacramento County, the cities of Sacramento and Folsom, and SMUD. If you can’t make the dates above, you can also recycle your tree by cutting it up and placing it in your curbside green waste cart and it will be picked up on your regular green waste collection day.
