If you’d rather get rid of that Christmas tree the right way, here’s some advice from the City of Philadelphia
2012 Christmas Tree Recycling Program
Program will run for two weeks: Tuesday, January 3, 2012 through Saturday, January 14, 2012
Citizens who wish to drop off their tree for recycling may take it to the Streets Department Sanitation Convenience Centers located at 3033 South 63rd Street, Domino Lane and Umbria Street and State Road and Ashburner Street during these weeks only. The sites are open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
The program is designed to provide citizens with an environmentally safe alternative for disposal of used trees.
Commercial entities are not permitted to use Sanitation Convenience Centers to dispose of their trees.
Christmas trees brought to the site should be in the following condition:
- Free of all decorations and ornaments
- Free of plastic bags or wrappings
Christmas trees put out at curbside will be collected as trash.
Citizens who require additional information regarding the Christmas Tree Recycling Program may contact the Customer Affairs Unit at (215) 686-5560.
