If you opted for a fresh cut Christmas tree this year, you might be wondering what to do with it after the big day. The City of Lubbock is offering several drop off locations for Christmas tree recycling. Yesterday's Christmas trees will become tomorrow's mulch-I love that your real tree gets new life conserving water for other plants. Here is the City's drop locations and instructions, so you can find the location and time most convenient for you:


Beginning December 26, Solid Waste Services will offer Lubbock residents fresh-cut Christmas tree drop-off recycling at the City's four Citizen Convenience Stations. The landfill will mulch the fresh-cut trees.

Residents are asked to remove all decorations, the metal stand, and any plastic before placing fresh-cut Christmas trees in the roll-off dumpsters located outside the gates of the Citizen Convenience Stations located at:
• 208 Municipal Drive
• 1631 84th Street
• 7308 Milwaukee
• 4307 Adrian Street

After January 8, 2018, and throughout the month of January, the roll-offs will be located inside the gates and residents can drop-off fresh-cut Christmas trees from 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday - Saturday.
