Christmas Tree Recycling

Recycle More NRHThe City of North Richland Hills and Republic Services are offering a Christmas tree recycling program for residents starting December 26, 2016. To make recycling simple, two convenient options will be available:

  • Bare Christmas trees can be dropped off December 26, 2016 through January 8, 2017 at Green Valley Park at 7701 Smithfield Road, or at the parking lot of the Dan Echols Center at 6801 Glenview Drive.  Please place trees in the dumpsters.
  • Residents can place bare Christmas trees curbside for recycling by 7 a.m. on Wednesday, December 28, 2016 or Wednesday, January 4, 2017. (Trees placed curbside on your normal garbage collection days will be put in the landfill and not recycled.)  If the tree is taller than 5 feet, please cut it in half.
In order for trees to be recycled they should be free of tinsel, ornaments, bags, plastic and stands. Mulch from the recycled trees will be available for residents to pick up at the two drop-off locations January 9 through 22, while supplies last. Please bring your own container and shovel to load the mulch.

The City of North Richland Hills is committed to protecting our natural resources, promoting environmentally-friendly lifestyles and business practices, and encouraging everyone who lives in, works in and visits North Richland Hills to "think green."
