Las Vegas Christmas Tree Recycling

Mulching Christmas trees

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.

How to Prepare Your Tree

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.

For more information about the Christmas Tree Recycling Committee, how you can get involved and tree drop sites, call Tara Pike-Nordstom at UNLV Rebel Recycling at (702) 895-3760.
