Metro Nashville Christmas Tree-cycling Available Again In 2019

Cortnye Stone, 615-862-8779

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

The Christmas Tree Recycling Drop-off program will run from December 26, 2019 to February 17, 2020 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
  • Lakewood City Hall
  • 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-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.
