Recycling Live Christmas Trees

by |

You’ve taken all the tinsel, lights and ornaments off your Christmas tree, freed it from the clutches of the tree stand, but what now? Where can you recycle your live tree?

When you recycle your live Christmas tree, the trees are shredded and then used as mulch or even used on the trails in the parks in Rutherford County. That’s why you need to remove everything from them before dropping them off. The Rutherford County Recycling Centers DO NOT accept Christmas trees for disposal, however, all County residents may use any of these facilities to recycle Christmas trees (no commercial drop-off, please).
