Options to recycle Christmas trees

Community By Linda Trischitta, Editor Friday, January 6, 2023

   Miami-Dade County says Christmas trees -- clean and without decorations -- may be disposed of in three ways:

--Drop trees off at a trash and recycling center. The closest one to town is at 7870 NW 178th St. in Palm Springs North. It’s open daily from 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

--Curbside tree collection will happen from Jan. 11 - Jan. 22 and from Jan. 25 - Feb. 5. Trees will be collected on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.  Do not put cut-up or whole trees inside garbage or recycling carts. 

--Bulk waste pickup is available. Call 311 to make an appointment or visit https://bit.ly/3jy1NyL to schedule a time and date.

--Free mulch from Christmas trees will be available for pickup in the spring.

   Residents in the service area who show proof of address may sign up to get mulch.

   To register or for more information call 311 or go to https://bit.ly/3I3wR3H.
