Annual County Christmas Tree Recycling Program

Christmas Trees Accepted Through Saturday, January 14, 2023 at County Parks

The Allegheny County Parks Department is offering its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program this holiday season. Residents may drop off Christmas trees from Monday, December 26, 2022, through Saturday, January 14, 2023, at all nine county parks from 8:00 am until dusk.

All lights, decorations, tinsel and stands must be removed from trees prior to drop-off. Trees will be mulched and used in the county parks. Trees can be dropped off at the Wave Pool Parking Lots at both South Park and Settlers Cabin Park.

The list of drop-off locations is also available online at

During the 2021-22 program, over 2,960 trees were received and recycled, with the resulting mulch used for various purposes throughout the park system’s 12,000+ acres.
