Recycle Christmas Trees in county parks

 


Allegheny County is once again offering its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program this holiday season.

Residents of the county can drop off their Christmas trees through Monday, Jan. 16, 2017 at all nine regional parks during regular hours of operation, dawn to dusk.

All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed from trees prior to drop-off. The trees will be mulched and used in our parks.

Following are the drop-off locations:

Boyce Park, in the parking lot by the wave pool;

Deer Lakes Park, in the parking lot by the Veterans 2 Shelter;

Harrison Hills Park, in the parking lot at the intersection of Chipmunk and Cottontail Drive;

Hartwood Acres Park, in the parking lot at the mansion;

North Park, in the parking lot at the swimming pool;

Round Hill Park, in the parking lot past spray park, between Meadow and Alfalfa shelters ;

Settlers Cabin Park, in the parking lot by the wave pool;

South Park, in the parking lot at the wave pool; and,

White Oak Park, in the parking lot by the Poplar 1 Shelter.

During the 2015-16 program, more than 2,300 trees were received and recycling with the largest amount being dropped off at the North Park collection. The recycling generated 125-175 yards of mulch.
