Zero Waste Holidays: Holiday Tree Composting Options

Zero Waste Christmas Tree Composting

As the holidays come to a close, remember to properly plan to have your holiday tree recycled the zero-waste way, by turning it into mulch or compost. Only real trees, without decorations, lights, stands, tinsel and flocking can be recycled and composted.  

Here are Santa Rosa residents' options to recycle your holiday tree.

Curbside Residential Collection

  • For curbside tree recycling is available to residents on regular collection days between December 26 and January 6, 2024. After January 6, 2024, please remove all accessories and decorations from your tree and cut it to fit inside your green organics bin with the lid closed. Do not bag your tree. Flocked trees must be placed in the garbage bin.

Drop-off - Friday January 12, 2024 is the Last Day!

  • Santa Rosa residents may drop-off whole unflocked trees at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Rd. (Jockey Club entrance), Dec. 26, 2023 to Jan. 12, 2024, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Thank you for doing your part to keep organic waste out of our landfills.

Remember, if it Grows, then it GOES, in your Green Bin or Home Compost Bin.

Non-profit Whole Tree Pick-up 

  • Call 707-565-3333 to make an appointment for pickup. Pickups will be available Dec. 30-31, Jan. 6-7 and Jan. 13. Call before Saturday, Jan. 9, to make an appointment. The suggested donation is $10 for trees less than 6 feet and $15 for larger trees.
