City of Apache Junction sponsors Christmas tree recycling

Posted

Instead of sending a live Christmas tree to a landfill, think “treecycle” and give a gift back by recycling the freshly cut holiday tree.

The City of Apache Junction is participating in this tree-recycling effort by providing two free drop-off points in the city. The sites available to accept trees for recycling will be open 24 hours a day for free drop-off through Feb. 3. Those sites are:

  • Paws & Claws Care Center, 725 E. Baseline Ave.
  • Prospector Park, 3015 N. Idaho Road.

Residents are asked to remove all nails, stands, tinsel, lights and ornaments from trees. Flocked trees will not be accepted because the flocking does not break down in the environment, the release states.

Direct any questions about this program to the city’s Public Works Department at 480-982-1055.
