Denver's Treecycle Program

Recycle Your Tree with Denver's Treecycle Program

New Day-of-Service Schedule in 2019
Recycling your holiday tree is as easy as ever thanks to Denver Recycles' annual Treecycle program. For every tree recycled with Treecycle, Denver residents help keep organic material out of the landfill, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create mulch that is made available to Denver residents for free at the annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale in May.

Participating in Treecycle is easy, free, and truly a no-brainer. After the holidays, follow these easy steps to recycle your tree:
Remove all decorations, lights, and the tree stand from your tree.
Set your tree out for collection on one of your scheduled trash collection days during the two-week Treecycle collection period.
Reclaim free mulch made from your tree at the annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale in May 2019.
