Town offers Christmas Tree Recycling

Christmas Tree Recycling

The Town of Parker will host their annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program from Dec. 26, 2019 through Jan. 20, 2020. This year's drop-off site will again be the paved Salisbury Park ballfields parking lot, at 11920 Motsenbocker Rd.

The drop-off is available solely for Parker residents to recycle their Christmas trees. Additional yard waste and tree branches are not permitted. No commercial tree lot disposal is allowed as our elves have a hard time removing all of the tags.

Both green and flocked real trees are accepted. Before dropping off any Christmas trees, please remove all plastic tarps, tree stands and nails, ornaments, lights, garland and tinsel. No artificial trees, garland or wreathes with wire backing will be accepted.

Please drop off during park hours only, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., and do not illegally dump any other items at the drop-off location.

The trees collected by the program will be chipped into mulch, which is available at the same site at no charge to residents. Beginning Dec. 31, mulch will typically be available on-site next to the drop-off pile. Remaining mulch will be utilized throughout the Town and not discarded in a landfill.

Residents should not place Christmas trees in garbage containers. Keeping trees out of the landfills helps extend the life of landfills and produces a useful resource. The annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program is just one of many ways that Parker residents can reduce, re-use and recycle.

Please contact the Town of Parker Forestry Division at 303.805.3244 with further questions.
