Since 2003, more than 100,000 trees have been recycled through the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Christmas Tree Recycling program, thanks to the help of thousands of volunteers and our many partners.

The 2015-16 Christmas Tree Recycling program runs from December 26 – January 10 and offers residents in Washoe County, ten drop-off locations.

The Christmas trees are chipped into mulch that is used for park and weed abatement projects and is available for free to area residents at the Bartley Ranch and Rancho San Rafael drop-off sites.

Christmas Tree Recycling is sponsored by the NV Energy Foundation and is offered in partnership with the City of Reno, City of Sparks, Goat Grazers, Nature’s Bakery, Nevada Division of Forestry, Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District, Tahoe Trail Bars, Tholl Fence, and Washoe County.
