Allegheny County Christmas Tree Recycling Program

Allegheny County Again Offering Christmas Tree Recycling Program

 

PITTSBURGH – Allegheny County is once again offering its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program this holiday season. Residents of the county can drop off their Christmas trees beginning on Monday, December 26, 2016 through Monday, January 16, 2017 at all nine regional parks during regular hours of operation (dawn to dusk).

 

All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed from trees prior to drop-off. The trees will be mulched and used in our parks.

 

Following are the drop-off locations:

 

Boyce Park Parking lot by the wave pool
Deer Lakes Park Parking lot by the Veterans 2 Shelter
Harrison Hills Park Parking lot at the intersection of Chipmunk & Cottontail Drive
Hartwood Acres Park Parking lot at the mansion
North Park Parking lot at the swimming pool
Round Hill Park Parking lot past spray park, between Meadow & Alfalfa Shelters
Settlers Cabin Park Parking lot by the wave pool
South Park Parking lot at the wave pool
White Oak Park Parking lot by the Poplar 1 Shelter

 

During the 2015-16 program, over 2,300 trees were received and recycling with the largest amount being dropped off at the North Park collection. The recycling generated 125-175 yards of mulch.
