• Boyce Park, soccer fields parking lot
• Deer Lakes Park, Veterans Shelter parking lot
• Harrison Hills Park, parking lot at the intersection of Chipmunk Drive and Cottontail Drive
• Hartwood Acres, Mansion parking lot
• North Park, swimming pool parking lot

The list of drop-off locations is also available online at http://www.alleghenycounty.us/parks/christmas-tree-recycling-program.aspx.
During the 2018-19 program, approximately 3,500 trees were received and recycled, with the resulting mulch used for various purposes throughout the park system's 12,000 acres.
