day for all
The City of Aspen and Pitkin County are celebrating National Day of Removing Christmas Trees by offering free tree recycling. The Rio Grande Recycling Center and the Pitkin County Landfill will accept trees until February 14th if there are no lights or decorations.
Holiday lights can be recycled in the “metals only” bin at the Rio Grande Recycling Center and the “scrap metal” bin at the Pitkin County Landfill. We do not accept wreaths or garlands as the metal wire presents a hazard when chipping wood. Recycled wood is mulched and composted for future plantings.
The Rio Grande Recycling Center is located in Aspen across from Overmyer Place in Rio Grande Place. Learn more about the city’s waste reduction program online at aspen.gov/scraps.
The Pitkin County landfill is located at 32046 Jack Gradiglane Lane in Aspen. More information on landfills is available online at LandfillRules.com.
