Christmas-Tree-Fireplace-1024-127315It’s that time of the year to take the tree down, and King County offers a Christmas tree recycling program for area residents.

Trees, sans tinsel and other decorations, can be recycled and used for landscaping mulch. King County offers the following recycling options:

  • Curbside pickup: If you have curbside yard waste collection service, you can place your tree at the curb with your regular yard waste. Restrictions vary, so contact your garbage hauler for the details.
  • Private companies: Several companies in King County collect Christmas trees for recycling – at rates that are lower than the transfer station. Visit the county’s website for more information.
  • Fundraising events: Many community groups sponsor Christmas tree-cycling fundraising events, including scouting troops, churches and others. For a small donation, they will deliver your tree to a commercial recycler. Look for neighborhood flyers for recycling events.

For more information, you can also call the King County Solid Waste Division, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at 206-296-4466 or toll free, at 800-325-6165, ext. 6-4466 or visit the website.
