Before you recycle your Christmas tree:

  • Remove lights, ornaments and tree stands, including wooden stands and nails.
  • Do not place the tree in a plastic bag.
  • Flocked trees are acceptable for recycling.

Trees placed curbside will only be collected for trash. Trees taller than 6’ must be cut in half for trash pick-up.

Please do not take Christmas trees to the leaf recycling drop-off sites.

Free mulch from the trees will be available to residents at the landfill in the spring for gardens and landscapes.

For general questions about Christmas tree recycling, please call 817-459-6777 or webapps.arlingtontx.gov/tmp/environment.
