Christmas tree recycling
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, to be recycled free of charge.
For more information about the Christmas Tree Recycling Committee, please call Tara Pike-Nordstom at UNLV Rebel Recycling at 702-895-3760.
Find the drop-off location nearest you
Drop off your Christmas tree at one of more than 30 drop sites to be recycled and re-used at no charge. 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.
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.

Even after all the holiday packages have been unwrapped there's still a chance to give one last present to the earth by donating your live Christmas tree.
The Christmas Tree Recycling Committee invites you to get involved and make this year an even bigger success. Your contribution is tax-deductible through the Conservation District of Southern Nevada, and if your pledge is received by the annual deadline, your name will be printed on a poster to be displayed throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Your organization name also will be displayed on this page. Make a commitment today and witness the benefits of your generosity for years to come by contacting Tara Pike-Nordstom at UNLV Rebel Recycling at 702-895-3760.
These community partners work to help keep Christmas trees out of Southern Nevada's local landfills by supporting the Christmas Tree Recycling program.
