Christmas Tree Recycling

Program Overview

This seasonal program is a benefit to all the residents of Hesperia that celebrate Christmas with a live tree. Beginning December 26, 2020 until January 22, 2021, Advance Disposal will pick up your Christmas tree at your curb on your trash collection day for no additional cost.

Tree Recycling Requirements

  • Remove all stands, lights, ornaments and tinsel
  • Cut Christmas trees in half if they are over six feet in length
  • No flocked trees, artificial trees or plastic bags will be accepted

Note: Trees will be ground up and used for mulch. Plastic bags, tinsel, etc., are contaminants in mulch and make the finished product unusable.

Another option for Christmas tree recycling is for residents to take their Christmas trees directly to Advance Disposal during the four-week period and place the trees in the roll off bin marked Christmas Trees Only. All tree recycling requirements must be followed.
