Holiday Tree Recycling

by Erin Spencer / December 4, 2017

“Don’t throw away your Christmas tree; give it another life by recycling it! City of Austin curbside customers can recycle their trees by leaving them at the curb on their regular collection day. All other residents can drop trees off at Zilker Park.”

“The Zilker Drop Off times are on the weekends, from DEC 30-JAN 7. Check out the website for more details. 

“Trees collected will be turned into mulch and will be available for free on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Jan. 18, 9 a.m.”
