For the 17th year, residents can recycle their Christmas trees through the City of Tucson’s TreeCycle Program. The program begins on Wednesday, December 26, 2012 and continues through Sunday, January 6, 2013. TreeCycle sites are located throughout Tucson and Oro Valley (see list of TreeCycle sites below).
The TreeCycle program began in 1997. This year, the City of Tucson will again be offering residents the opportunity to take a bit of Christmas home with them.
From January 2nd, through January 6th, 2013, the City of Tucson will have wood chips available for pick-up at Udall Park and Randolph Golf Course. Bring your own container and take home some free wood chips for your garden. Please remember to remove all ornaments, decorations and tree stands before dropping off at the TreeCycle sites. Remember to Tree Pool! Bring your neighbor’s tree— fewer trips means cleaner air.
