Philadelphia Christmas Tree Recycling Begins Monday

Philadelphia will begin collecting Christmas trees for recycling on Jan. 6.

The Philadelphia Streets Department will begin collecting Christmas trees for recycling on Monday, Jan. 6.

Residents can take their tree to one of three city locations for recycling.

Those locations are: Domino Lane and Umbria Street, 3033 S. 63rd St. and  State Road & Ashburner Street.

The program will last until Saturday, Jan. 18, and the drop off locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Trees brought to the site to be recycled should be free of all decorations and untied. Christmas trees with decorations cannot be recycled and will be placed with rubbish. Trees should not be brought to the site in plastic bags.

There will be no curbside collection of Christmas trees for recycling purposes. Trees left at the curb will be considered as trash and will be picked up on regularly scheduled trash days. As always, the program is for citizens who receive City collected trash and recycling services. Businesses are responsible for making arrangements for the private disposal of their discarded trees.
