No matter where you live in Davidson County, recycling your Christmas tree is easy. Last year, Nashvillians dropped off over 17,000 trees for recycling through Metro Nashville’s Christmas Tree Recycling Drop-off Program.

This year, Metro Public Works has teamed up with Metro Parks and Recreation as well as Metro contractor, Living Earth, to offer Davidson County residents an environmentally friendly and convenient way to dispose of their Christmas Trees.

The Christmas Tree Recycling Drop-off program will run from December 27, 2018 to February 16, 2019 at the following locations:

  • Cane Ridge Park
  • Una Recreation Center
  • Whitfield Park
  • Cedar Hill Park
  • Two Rivers Park
  • Joelton Community Center
  • Sevier Park, Richland Park
  • Elmington Park
  • Edwin Warner Park
  • Frederick Douglas Park
  • Both of Living Earth’s locations at 1511 Elm Hill Pike and 6401 Centennial Blvd.
    Living Earth’s of Tennessee’s operating hours are Monday thru Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday 7:30 a.m. to noon

Trees must be cleaned of all ornaments, lights, wire, string and other decor before bringing them to be tree-cycled. No artificial trees can be accepted. Please do not dump any other items at these drop-off locations.

Public Works will take the trees to our contractor, Living Earth to be chipped and composted into mulch.

Recycling Christmas trees into mulch, rather than putting them in the trash, keeps them out of landfills and helps save Metro the cost of disposal fees.
