About the KTMB Christmas Tree Recycling Program

Update: The recycling program has been extended to the weekend of January 14 - 15, 2023, to accommodate residents who couldn't get out due to the snowy weather and to provide a place to take broken and down branches resulting from the recent heavy weather.

The annual Christmas tree recycling program, sponsored by Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) and other public and private organizations, will run from December 26, 2022 through January 10, 2023. This program is an excellent way to give your Christmas tree a new purpose while keeping it out of the landfill or letting it be illegally dumped in our open spaces. To help KTMB fund this and other projects throughout the year, a donation of $5 per tree is requested.

Christmas trees are turned into mulch and used for park and weed abatement projects. Residents can pick up free mulch at the Bartley Ranch Park and Rancho San Rafael Park drop-off sites.

The Christmas tree recycling program accepts natural trees with all ornaments, lights, tinsel and stands removed. Flocked trees are not accepted. However, the program will collect unwanted Christmas lights for recycling.

Drop-off times are the same at each site - 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
