Treecycle Begins Dec. 26

The City of Tucson’s annual TreeCycle program begins Thursday, Dec. 26, and continues through Sunday, Jan. 12. Eight sites will be open for collection.

Residents are asked to remove all lights, ornaments, decorations, plastic tree bags, and tree stands before dropping off real trees at a TreeCycle site. In addition, do not leave trees outside the collection time or area due to fire hazard.

The City of Tucson will not collect Christmas trees from curbs and alleys. After Jan. 5, wood chips from shredded Christmas trees will be available at the Los Reales Landfill. The chips help soil to retain moisture. TreeCycle is now in its 23rd year.
