Carlsbad Offers Free Christmas Tree Recycling
Until January 13, 2017
For those of you with Christmas trees, the City of Carlsbad offers free, curbside pickup plus drop-off bin locations for Christmas trees beginning the day after Christmas until Friday, January 13th.
If you plan to take advantage of curbside pickup on your regular trash pick-up day, trees are to be placed at the end of your driveway next to your green waste bin.
NOTE: If your tree is taller than 6 feet it should be cut in half. If you can, place your tree in the Green Waste recycling bin. Flocked trees cannot be recycled but must be picked up as trash.
Be sure to remove all decorations, lights, tinsel and tree stands before recycling.
The good news is that Carlsbad will recycle the trees by converting them into mulch that can be used throughout San Diego County.
There are also 4 convenient drop-off locations for residents to use for their tree recycling:
Calavera Hills Community Park, 2997 Glasgow Drive
Stagecoach Community Park, 3420 Camino de los Coches
Poinsettia Community Park, 6600 Hidden Valley Road
Fire Station 1, 1275 Carlsbad Village Drive
