Christmas Tree Disposal

December 16, 2022   |   Posted In News

When you dispose of your Christmas tree in western Placer County, we give it a new life by recycling it into compost or wood chips.

There are four easy ways to recycle your tree:

  1. Place unflocked trees in your green waste bin Р Remove all branches and cut the trunk into sizes small enough to fit within the bin. Make sure the tree fits completely within the bin with the lid closed. 
  2. Take your tree to a FREE tree drop-off site – Check out the list of drop-off sites below to learn where (& when) you can drop off your tree for FREE in western Placer County.
  3. Boy Scouts of America Collection – Troops across Placer County offer Christmas Tree collection. You can schedule collection in Roseville, Rocklin, or Lincoln.
  4. Drop it off at the Western Placer Waste Management Authority – Trees can be dropped off every day of the year at the WPWMA (3195 Athens Avenue, Lincoln, CA). Disposal fees may apply.
