Join the Springs Preserve and the Christmas Tree Recycling Committee in giving our community a gift: Recycle your tree.
Each year from Dec. 26 to Jan. 15, you can take your cut Christmas trees to one of more than 30 convenient drop sites throughout the valley.
The Christmas Tree Recycling Committee, composed of local government agencies, nonprofits and businesses, has worked to keep Christmas trees out of Southern Nevada's local landfills since 2001.
Recycling your tree helps ensure the sustainability of our community by saving valuable landfill space. When chipped into mulch, cut trees become valuable organic material used in landscaping projects that help conserve soil moisture and keep plants healthy. There is no charge for this service.
Before dropping off your tree, remove all non-organic objects such as lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments and nails. Foreign objects can contaminate the mulch and ruin the chipper. Flocked trees cannot be recycled.
Dec. 26 through Jan. 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can pick up free mulch at the following locations:
1-800-GOT-JUNK will pick up trees from homes for $30. The fee includes removal of tree and clean-up of pine needles. The tree will then be dropped off at one of the designated recycling drop-off locations.
The service is available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily during the Christmas Tree Recycling program season. Customers can call 1-800-468-5865 (1-800-GOT-JUNK) 24 hours a day to schedule a pick up, or book online at 1800GOTJUNK.com.
