Christmas Tree Recycling

Post Date:12/26/2013

Carson City is pleased to, once again, offer Christmas Tree Recycling in cooperation with Capital Sanitation/Waste Management Inc. As in previous years, Christmas trees can be placed curbside on your regular trash collection day or taken to one of the drop off locations. Trees will be chipped in the springtime and used as mulch. This program continues to be a huge success. Carson City would like to thank everyone for their participation. Last year we were able to redirect 59 tons of wood waste from our landfill.

The dates for tree collection are:

Curbside collection will be from January 6, 2014 through January 10, 2014 on your regular trash day. If trees are longer than six feet, please cut them up into sections no longer than six feet.

Drop boxes will be at the following locations Only from January 6, 2014 through January 10, 2014:
J.C. Penney parking lot
North Town Plaza/near Bully’s
Capital Sanitation, 5560 Sheep Dr.
Carson City Corporate Yard/Butti Way – just west of Carson City Public Works on Airport Rd.(Formerly Butti Way)

Carson City Landfill (Green Waste Pile)

After January 10, please take your Christmas Tree to the Carson City Landfill for recycling.

Trees left curbside after January 10 will be disposed of as garbage and will need to be cut into three foot sections so they will fit into the Waste Management trucks.

Remove all decorations, lights, tinsel and bases from the trees before recycling. Call the Carson City Environmental Control Authority at 887 2355 ext. 7390, 7380 or 7376 for further information.
