Christmas Tree Recycling

No matter which portion of Placer County you are in, Christmas trees are chipped for use as mulch or added to compost - not sent to the landfill. Not only does this result in a beneficial use of the material, it also reduces the amount of methane (a potent greenhouse gas) produced at the landfill.

Western Placer County - 2022/2023  


Eastern Placer County - 2023

In Eastern portions of the county, on your regular garbage collection day you may place your undecorated, unflocked Christmas trees curbside, cut into 3’ lengths or shorter. For questions about curbside collection in eastern Placer County, call TTSD at: (530) 583-7800.
