Recycle Your Christmas Tree and Feed the Compost Pile: When it’s time to take down the decorations, place your real tree (free of ornaments, tinsel and tree stand) or wreaths out by the curb on your usual collection day for pick-up as part of your regular scheduled yard waste collection.
ECUA will compost the trees with the other yard waste at their Biosolids Composting Facility. It’s just that EASY!
For City of Pensacola Sanitation Services customers, Sanitation will remove trees placed on the curb on your regular trash collection day. Please be sure to remove all decorations, ornaments and any attached tree stands. Do not place Christmas trees in recycling or garbage containers. Customers can also dispose of Christmas trees by taking them to one to the drop-off locations listed below through Jan. 31.
- Summit Boulevard, next to old Fire Station 3
- East Maxwell Street underneath Interstate 110
- Bill Gregory Park near the back of the park, dead-end of “W” Street and Navy Boulevard
For more information, please contact your waste service provider.
