Holiday Tree Recycling Begins January 8

Chicago’s Tree Recycling Program runs from January 8 through January 22 at 26 parks across the City. Trees can be dropped off anytime during normal business hours.

Only live/natural trees without flocking are accepted (no garland or wreaths). Because the trees are mulched, all tinsel, ornaments, lights, and stands must be removed. Plastic bags used for transport should also be removed before putting trees in the stalls.

Six locations will also provide free mulch on a first-come, first-served basis, starting January 10. The closest location in our area is in Lincoln Park Cannon Drive at Fullerton Ave (East side of Cannon Drive).  For more info, CLICK HERE.
