Artificial Christmas trees that are in good condition may be able to be donated. An internet search such as “donate Christmas tree York PA” will show options to donate such items.
Live Christmas trees are often collected curbside for recycling by waste haulers or municipal programs. Some municipalities also offer recycling drop-offs for Christmas trees. To find out if either of these options is available in your area, contact your waste hauler and/or municipality.
The York County Solid Waste Authority (YCSWA) also conducts a free Christmas Tree Recycling Program for all York County residents. YCSWA announces dates and instructions for the collection during the holiday season each year.
