Christmas tree recycling offered

(Port Orchard, WA) - Give your unflocked* tree a new life by recycling it after the holiday season. Trees are chipped into mulch or compost, which can be returned to the earth as a soil amendment. Santa says, “Treecycle your Christmas tree! It’s cheaper and better for the environment!”

Santa’s Nice List of Tree Disposal
Take your tree to one of the recycling sites listed below. Some sites are free and some have a small fee or donation (usually less than $5). Remove the stand, tinsel, decorations, nails, and staples.

  1. Pickup—If you have a food and yard waste cart, cut your unflocked tree until it fits inside with the lid closed. Remove the stand, tinsel, decorations, nails, and staples.

  2. Pickup—Some youth and scouting groups pick up trees from the curb for a donation. For a list of known fundraisers, visit http://bit.ly/recyclemytree. Did we miss your tree recycling fundraiser? Email solidwaste@co.kitsap.wa.us to be added.

  3. Drop Off—Take your tree to one of the recycling sites listed below. Some sites are free and some have a small fee or donation (usually less than $5). Remove the stand, tinsel, decorations, nails, and staples.
