Residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in the city’s free Christmas Tree Recycling Program after the holiday season. This green and sustainable program grinds all Christmas trees into mulch that will be used in gardens and parks within Delray Beach and Palm Beach County. To participate, those that DO NOT currently maintain “vegetation” collection services may drop trees off between December 26th and January 22nd at Barwick Park, 735 Barwick Road, Orchard View Park, 4060 Old Germantown Road and Knowles Park, 1001 South Federal Highway.
Single family residences and business locations that DO maintain weekly “vegetation” collection service may place Christmas trees curbside on regularly scheduled vegetation pick-up days. Before recycling, remove all tinsel, lights, ornaments, decorations and stands. For more information on the City’s Christmas Tree Recycling Program, please call Jennifer Buce, Litter Prevention Coordinator, at (561) 243-7138 or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
