Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Here's what to do when you're ready to take down the tinsel and clear out the tree.


DeKalb County will pick up Christmas trees left at the curb on your regular yard debris pickup day.

Or, for a small fee, you can help local Boy Scout Troop 266 with its 8th annual Christmas Tree Recycling Project.

To take part in the troop's project, you'll need to set out your tree before 8 a.m. on Saturday Jan. 5. You'll need to include $10 cash, or a check payable to Troop 266, in a plastic bag attached to the base of the tree.

Here's how the scouts ask that you prep your tree, which will be ground into mulch for use in the community:

"Place your tree at your front curb or just outside your apartment door. Make sure your tree is free of all decorations. Please remove all lights, tinsel, garland, plastic wrap, tree stands, wire, rope, nails and any other foreign material from your tree. Scouts will pick up all trees and recycle them."
