Christmas Tree Recyling


This page currently reflects the 2020 - 2021 Tree Recycling information.  New information will provided as soon as possible.
If you know of any other recycling options, please send us an email.

Omaha

Christmas trees must be prepared according to the yardwaste collection regulations to be collected as a part of your Omaha solid waste collection service. Please remove bags, ornaments, and lights, nails, wires, tree stand, plastic bags (please take bags home and dispose with garbage).

Wreathes and evergreen roping will not be accepted but flocked trees are ok.

Share the Christmas spirit and ask a neighbor if you can help them get their tree to a recycling site.
All sites close on Monday, January 11, 2021.  Do not deliver trees after this date.
Doing so is illegal dumping and punishable by a fine of up to $500, loss of drivers license for 6 months and all clean up costs. Omaha Municipal Code, Chapter 34, ARTICLE I, Section 4.

Please throw your tree up on the pile. This will leave room for others to access the site.
The sites are open daily during daylight hours starting December 24. Volunteers from the Rotary Clubs of Omaha, and the Douglas-Sarpy Master Gardeners will staff the busy sites (A - Tranquility Park and D - the F Street Football Field) and help you unload your tree on both December 28 - 29 and again January 4 - 5, 2020 from 10AM until 4PM each day.  Sites will close on Monday, January 8, 2020.
