Christmas Tree Recycling

Add a little more green to your holiday season by recycling your live Christmas Tree

The collection will take place the first three Thursdays after Christmas Day. All decorations should be removed and trees placed at the curb, free of any wrapping or bags, by 7 a.m. on Thursday. Christmas trees can also be composted at home or used in the back yard in a variety of ways. The branches can be cut and used to cover perennial gardens, acting as extra protection from the cold weather. Trees can also provide wild birds and animals temporary perches or resting sites with extra protection from cold weather. Prairie Township is committed to providing its residents with comprehensive recycling and yard waste diversion programs to reduce and recycle our waste stream and increase environmental protection and awareness.
