Recycle your TreeRecycle your Christmas Tree

Once the last present has been unwrapped and the tinsel and lights come off, your Christmas tree might look a little lonely. Why not give it a new life as mulch that nourishes Golden’s gardens in 2017? The City of Golden provides a quick and easy way for you to dispose of your Christmas trees after the ornaments and lights have come off. Drop off your trees from Dec. 26 through Jan. 27 at the old recycle site off of Golden Gate Canyon Road. Please place your tree near the sign posted for tree recycling. Trees must be stripped of all ornaments, hardware, strings of lights and tinsel. This is for live trees only. The trees will be turned into mulch, which will eventually be available for free at the public pickup site on 11th Street, just west of the Clear Creek History Park. For further details, contact the City of Golden Forestry office at 303-384-8141.
