Christmas Tree Recycling

KTMB’s Christmas Tree Recycling program is a holiday tradition!

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. BartleyJan8PM-3

The 2015-16 Christmas Tree Recycling program runs from December 26 – January 10 and offers residents in Washoe County, ten drop-off locations. Please view drop-off locations on the Google map below.  Bartley Ranch Regional Park, Rancho San Rafael Regional Park, and Shadow Mountain Sports Complex in Sparks will once again be drop-off sites. Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District fire stations in Cold Springs, both Washoe Valley stations, Spanish Springs, Silver Knolls and Lemmon Valley will also be drop-off locations for the 2015-16 program. Drop-off times are from 9am – 4:30 pm each day of the program at each site.

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. 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, Nevada Division of Forestry, Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District, Nevada Division of Forestry, Tholl Fence, Washoe County, and the Washoe County Health District.
