Wondering how to dispose or recycle your Christmas tree Lake Oswego?Copyright Betty Jung, MORE Realty, Inc.

A lot of it comes down to the preparation.  Most trees are recycled into wood chips or compost, so it’s important to remove all lights, tinsel, ornaments, nails, stands and other non-organic materials. Flocked trees may not be accepted at all locations and over-sized trees should be cut in half.  If in doubt, call ahead for additional information and fees.

Republic Services provides curbside tree recycling through your weekly yard debris collection service.  Trees must fit completely inside your green yard debris collection bin if using your regular weekly service, so you may need to cut them up. Customers with no yard waste service or with trees not able to fit in yard waste bins, can contact Republic Services at 503-636-3011 to schedule a pick-up for a fee.
