The Solid Waste Management Department is encouraging residents to recycle their Christmas trees, saving landfill space and disposal costs. Residents can recycle their trees by dropping them off at one of 18 free drop-off recycling sites located throughout Houston.
The program runs from December 27, 2012 to January 8, 2013. In addition to the drop-off locations, residents with City of Houston collection may place their tree curbside on their scheduled tree waste day and it will be recycled. Trees that are collected for recycling will be ground into mulch that is available in bulk directly from Living Earth or available in bags at Houston retailers. The trees must have all decorations, ornaments, tinsel, lights and stands removed. Flocked trees cannot be recycled.
