Christmas Tree Recycling

The Forest Preserve District of Will County has ceased Christmas Tree collections as of the 2016-2017 season.

Please know that real trees used for Christmas celebrations remain a resource when the holiday ends. To be certain that a tree is not sent to a landfill, check with your municipality to see if trees are collected separately for recycling and composting. Some communities offer this service at your curb, others offer drop-off sites for community residents.

If none of these services is available, please consider holding on to your tree until March when it could be cut up and placed in the yardwaste collection bags. During the cold winter, birds may use the tree as shelter. You may wish to place pine cones with suet or peanut butter inside the shelter. This allows small birds to find shelter and food in the winter months and gives the tree more use.
