Christmas Tree Collection
Christmas tree pick will start January 2nd and will end January 31st .
Euclid has curbside collection of Christmas trees. Chips for mulching. Remove all decorations, tinsel, ornaments and lights.
Each year, 10 million Christmas trees end up in the landfill. Your tree does not belong in curbside recycling with your newspapers and bottles, but you can still recycle your tree. Many cities offer programs to turn your tree to mulch or wood chips. Call your city service department or trash hauler for more information or find details for your community.
Local farms will accept Christmas trees as animal feed. For the safety of the animals, all decorations, tinsel, ornaments and lights must be removed. On the east side, contact Kelly’s Working Well Farm, 16495 S. Franklin Street in Chagrin Falls (440/247-7825) for donation details. On the west side, drop off trees at Stearns Homestead, 6975 Ridge Road in Parma (place undecorated trees in the front pasture along the fence).

Artificial trees cannot be recycled. If they are no longer usable, they should be placed in the regular trash for disposal. If they are pre-lit, the light strings can be removed from the tree and recycled through a holiday lights recycling program.
