Christmas Tree Recycling Available at the Rio Grande Recycling Center

Local News

ASPEN, Colo. — The City of Aspen’s waste reduction program is helping wrap up the holidays by offering free tree recycling at the Rio Grande Recycling Center located across from Obermeyer Place on Rio Grande Place. Trees are accepted until February 14 if they are free of lights and decorations. Wreaths nor garlands are accepted due to the danger the metal wire presents when chipping the trees.

The recycled trees are turned into mulch and then composted to be used for future plantings. For more information about tree recycling and the Waste Reduction program, visit CityOfAspen.Com/345/Rio-Grande-Recycle-Center.
