Recycle Christmas Trees

Recycle your Christmas Tree Annually at the York County Solid Waste Authority’s Yard Waste Transfer Facility:

Christmas trees are accepted seven days a week during daylight hours from December 26 through January 31 each year at the Authority’s Yard Waste Transfer Facility.  There is no fee to York County residents and no gate token is needed for this event.  Please remove lights, ornaments, tinsel and protective bags from your tree before delivery.  Trees collected at the Authority’s Yard Waste Transfer Facility are shipped off site to an end user.

Other Christmas Tree Recycling Options:

Many municipalities now offer Christmas tree collection for their residents as part of the curbside recycling program.  Contact your municipality to find out if they offer this service. Dedicated loads of Christmas trees collected in municipal programs are accepted at no charge during regular business hours at the Authority’s Yard Waste Transfer Facility.

Other drop-off sites for Christmas trees include H&H Excavating in Spring Grove (717-225-4669) and Spring Valley Mulch in Dover (717-292-3476).  Please call ahead for hours of acceptance.
