We are preparing for the 2019/2020 Christmas tree recycling season!
Is your troop, business, or organization organizing a public tree recycling drop-off event or pickup service? Email us the details and we will promote your event.
Year-round tree and yard waste recycling is available at yard waste recycling sites.
You cannot recycle trees at the North, Central, and South Kitsap Recycling and Garbage Facilities, but they will be accepted as garbage.
You can recycle unflocked trees at Olympic View Transfer Station for the minimum fee.
If you subscribe to curbside compost service, simply remove all decorations and then cut your tree until it fits into your cart. Trees left at the curb will be charged as extra garbage and will not be recycled.
Did you know that Kitsap County is one of the top Christmas tree-producing counties in Washington? Local trees support our local economy. Unlike PVC plastic trees, real trees can be grown, enjoyed, and recycled right here in Kitsap!
It can be difficult to tell what flocking material is actually made from. Tree recyclers do not want to risk adding harmful chemicals to their soil and mulch products. Flocked trees should be taken to a disposal facility. Or cut the flocked tree into pieces and add small pieces to your garbage weekly until it's gone.
Trees are chipped to become mulch or compost, some of which is used to grow more local Christmas trees.
We make every effort to keep this list up-to-date, but information may change without notice. Email email@example.com to correct information.
