Christmas Tree Recycling

The City of Longview offers recycling for Christmas trees, late December through mid January each year. Trees may be taken to the City of Longview Compost Site at 2020 Swinging Bridge Rd.

As a reminder, throughout the year Longview residents may drop off yard waste at the Compost Site, including limbs, brush, leaves, grass clippings, and pine straw. The mulch and compost that is produced is available at no charge to Longview citizens with proof of residency such as a Driver’s License or water bill. Compost Site regular hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Christmas Tree Recycling is a service provided by the Parks and Recreation Department in conjunction with the Sanitation Department. Since it began in 1989, the program has relieved the landfill of thousands of bulky Christmas trees. Many of the trees brought in for recycling are given to local organizations to be used for environmentally beneficial purposes, such as fish habitats at area lakes. Also, many of the trees will be converted to mulch or compost.

Christmas trees left at the curb for regular trash collection WILL NOT be recycled. Trees set at curb for regular trash pick­-up should be cut in half for removal.
