Now Christmas is over; you may be thinking about what to do with your Christmas tree. The best way to dispose of your Christmas tree is to recycle it.
The Indianapolis Department of Public Works and Indy Parks have teamed up to accept live Christmas trees for recycling at multiple drop-off points in public parks throughout the city. You can dispose of your live Christmas tree at one of the city’s drop-off locations from now through Jan. 31 from dusk until dawn. The trees must be free of all ornaments, tinsel, lights, and decorations before dropping them off. The collected trees will be recycled into various soil blends and mulch.
This service is provided for residents of Marion County only and is not offered for commercial use.
