Christmas Tree Recycling in Carlsbad

Carlsbad News

Once again the City of Carlsbad will be offering Christmas tree recycling services for residents, with 2 options.

You can use curbside pick-up with your normal trash service beginning December 26th and through Friday January 10th. The tree should be placed at curbside next to the green recycling bin. If your tree is over 6 feet you should cut it in half and place in the green recycle bin for pickup.

Be aware that flocked trees cannot be recycled and should be placed in the regular trash bin for pickup.

The other option is to use one of the 5 drop-off sites, through Saturday January 11th.

Calavera Hills Community Park – 2997 Glasgow Drive

Poinsettia Community Park – 6600 Hidden Valley Road

Stagecoach Community Park – 3420 Camino de los Coches

City of Carlsbad Fire Station 1 – 1275 Carlsbad Village Drive

Carlsbad recycles the trees by turning them into mulch that can be used throughout San Diego County.
