4 Ways to Have the Greenest Christmas Tree

Megan Malone Nov 27, 2020


Christmas Tree Recycling Tips

  • You can put the tree out on the street whole; you do not need to cut the tree into segments to meet the usual yard waste limitations
  • You must remove everything from the tree – not just lights and tinsel and ornaments, but also tree stands and tree bags
  • Only leave real trees at the curb; Cincinnati Public Services can deal with artificial trees, but it is a different process than the one for real trees.
  • These trees, once they are collected, will be chipped at the recycling center. After that, the chips will either be added to big compost piles or used as pine mulch.
