Once again, residents can recycle their Christmas trees through the City of Tucson’s TreeCycle Program. The program begins on Saturday, December 26, 2020 and continues through Sunday, January 17, 2021. TreeCycle sites are located throughout Tucson and Oro Valley (see list of TreeCycle sites below).
Your Christmas tree is a sustainable resource. Remove everything from the tree, including the stand, lights, ornaments, wire, and tinsel, before dropping off at the TreeCycle sites. Also remember to Tree Pool and bring your neighbor’s tree — fewer trips means cleaner air.
This year, Merry Mulch will not be available to residents. The City of Tucson will instead grind Christmas trees and use it at the new compost facility.
