Recycle your Christmas Tree at the Forest Preserve District of Will County


2014 Christmas Tree Recycling in Will County

The Forest Preserve District of Will County is collecting Christmas Trees to be recycled into mulch for Forest Preserve Trails.

According to the Will County Forest Preserve website:


"This year, give the Earth a gift by recycling your Christmas tree. Every year, millions of Christmas trees end up in landfills. However, you can give your tree a second life by recycling it with the Forest Preserve. Your tree will take a new life "path" by becoming mulch used on our trails and for landscaping. Please remove all tinsel, lights, and ornaments before dropping off your tree. This program is for individual households; no commercial tree surplus, please.

The Forest Preserve will be accepting trees at:



Trees will be accepted every day from December 27 through January 9 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m."
