The holidays have come and gone โ€” meaning itโ€™s time to recycle your tree in Fort Worth (and we promise, it couldnโ€™t be easier). Hereโ€™s how to recycle your real tree so it can achieve its destiny as biodegradable mulch in our city.

๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ Leave it curbside

If your real tree is under eight ft. tall, simply place it at the curb on your normal garbage pickup day. The tree must be removed from its stand without decorations, nails, plastic bags, or other wrappings.

Trees over eight ft. tall must be trimmed into sections. Do not place anything in a plastic bag.

๐Ÿ›ป Drop it off

The city gives you another option to drop your tree off. There are four drop-off stations open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

  • 2400 Brennan Ave.
  • 5150 Martin Luther King Freeway
  • 6260 Old Hemphill Rd.
  • 301 Hillshire Dr.

๐ŸŽ„ Artificial trees

All curbside pickup + drop-off information pertains to real trees only; if you need to dispose of an artificial tree, do so in your brown garbage cart for bulk waste collection.
