This is the LAST year the City is hosting its Christmas Tree Recycling Event before the new solid waste contract begins March 1.

Under the new contract, residents will be able to put Christmas trees of a certain size and type curbside for collection.

Remove all hooks, ornaments, tinsel, and tree stands before bringing your tree to be recycled. Flocked, artificial and garden trees, branches, wreaths, and swags will not be accepted.

If there is snow or ice on the road on event day, call 206-801-2450 for a recorded message of the event’s status.

If the event is cancelled or you cannot make it to the event, other options for disposal of holiday trees in Shoreline include:
  • If you have Recology CleanScapes yard debris collection, recycle your tree curbside. Cut your tree into 4 foot lengths, and place them next to your yard debris container at the curb for collection at no cost. No flocked, tinseled, or artificial trees are accepted; and trees without a yard debris cart next to them will not be collected.
  • If you have a flocked, tinseled or an artificial tree, and you have Recology CleanScapes curbside garbage collection, cut it to fit inside your garbage cart for free collection. If the tree is taller than 4 feet, cut it into 4 ft. sections, and put them next to your garbage cart for a collection cost of $4.56.
  • Recycle your tree for a cost at the Shoreline Recycling and Transfer Station at 2300 N 165 St. Call 206-477-4466 for information on rates.
  • Recycle your tree for a fee at Pacific Topsoils in North Seattle, 1212 N 107th St, Seattle, or Kenmore, 7500 NE 175th St, Kenmore. The City of Shoreline does not endorse or guarantee any services.

For questions, contact Tina Kendall, Environmental Program Specialist, at 206-801-2450.
