Christmas Tree Recycling
Since 2003, more than 100,000 trees have been recycled through the Christmas Tree Recycling program thanks to the help of thousands of volunteers and our many partners. Please check the KTMB Event Calendar for program dates.
The Christmas Tree Recycling Program provides community residents with an easy alternative to dumping trees in the landfill or- as is sometimes seen- in the open spaces. 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.
