Every year, organizations around the County offer ways to recycle your tree after the holidays. We've compiled a list of community fundraisers and businesses who recycle trees from Bainbridge Island to Olalla.
Several groups offer pickup at your residence, depending on location. Use the Treecycle Map to find a location near you. Trees should be free of any decorations. Tree recyclers often find stray ornaments in trees. Don't let your family memories escape! Take a second look for any stray lights, tinsel or ornaments before it's hauled away.
Recycled Christmas trees are made into mulch, which is used to improve soil health at public parks, local farms and homes. Meanwhile, trees that go to the landfill release methane gas that warms the atmosphere.
