What to do with the Christmas Tree?

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

The tree should still be good and you can enjoy it for another week. But for those who like to plan ahead - here are the local ways to dispose of your Christmas tree.


If you are fortunate enough to live in a neighborhood served by a Boy Scout or Girl Scout Troop, you will have found an envelope at your door with instructions about what day to put your tree at curbside for pick up by your local scout troop. The envelope is for your donation for troop activities. If you did not get an envelope, you are not in the service area.

City of Shoreline Recycling Event - Saturday, January 10, 8-4pm

Meridian Park School parking lot, 17077 Meridian Ave N

The City hosts a one day Christmas Tree Recycling Event to help Shoreline residents recycle their holiday trees. Remove all hooks, ornaments, tinsel, and tree stands. Do not bring flocked, artificial or garden trees, branches, wreaths, or swags.

Trees will be recycled by Recology CleanScapes, but they won’t be chipped on-site at the event. If there is snow or ice on the road on event day, January 10, call 206-801-2450 for a recorded message of the event’s status.
