Allegheny County will recycle your Christmas Tree at nine regional parks
December 26, 2017
Allegheny County is offering its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program this holiday season.
County residents can drop off their Christmas trees Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018 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 county parks.
Following are the drop-off locations:
Boyce Park, parking lot by the soccer fields;
Deer Lakes Park, parking lot by the Veterans 2 Shelter;
Harrison Hills Park, parking lot at the intersection of Chipmunk and Cottontail Drive;
Hartwood Acres Park, parking lot at the mansion;
North Park, parking lot at the swimming pool;
Round Hill Park, parking lot at the Alfalfa Shelter;
Settlers Cabin Park, parking lot by the wave pool;
South Park, parking lot at the wave pool; and,
White Oak Park, parking lot at the Chestnut Shelter.
During the 2016-17 program, more than 2,000 trees were received and recycled, with the resulting mulch used for various purposes throughout the park system’s 12,000 acres.
