Annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program Begins January 3, 2012

The City of Carbondale Forestry Division will conduct its annual Curbside Christmas Tree Recycling Program from January 3, 2012 through January 27, 2012. Residents that would like to participate in this program should place their Christmas tree curbside on their normal refuse and recycling collection day. Please note that the actual collection and chipping of the trees will occur the following day. Residents wishing to dispose of their Christmas trees on days other than their normal refuse day may also take their Christmas trees to one of the following neighborhood drop-off sites:

  • Public Works Complex on North Michaels Street (main gate north of Willow St.)
  • East Recycling Drop-Off Center on East College Street (west of the Stor-N-Lok)
  • Parrish Park parking lot on West Sunset Drive (east end of the parking lot)
  • Attucks Park parking lot on North Wall Street (south parking lot)


Please discard pine rope, wreaths, garland, and flocked trees with regular refuse. Questions about this program may be directed to the Maintenance and Environmental Services Office at 457-3275 or to the City Forester’s Office at 549-5302 ext. 332.
