TUCSON, Ariz. -- After you unwrap presents and put away decorations, it will be time to get rid of your Christmas tree. The City of Tucson's TreeCycle Program is there to help.

From Thursday, Dec. 26 through Jan. 12, TreeCycle sites will accept trees in Tucson and Oro Valley. Sites are open daily during daylight hours.

If you plan to drop off your trees, remove all lights, decorations, plastic tree bags and tree stands before doing so. Trees collected are chipped and the City of Tucson says the items can cause damage to people and the equipment. After January 5th, the City will have wood chips from the shredded trees for pickup at Los Reales Landfill. The community is welcome to bring containers and take home mulch for their use.

Here are the TreeCycle sites:

  • Oro Valley Lot: Naranja Park, 810 W. Naranja Dr. (Only open through January 5, 2020)
  • Golf Links Sports Park: 2400 S. Craycroft Rd
  • Tucson Rodeo Grounds: on 3rd Ave. (east of Rodeo Grounds, on 3rd Ave. north of Irvington Rd.)
  • Los Reales Landfill: 5300 E. Los Reales Rd. (follow signs, open Mon – Sat, 6 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
  • Purple Heart Park: 10050 E. Rita Rd.
  • Randolph Golf Course: 600 S. Alvernon Way, (southeast corner of parking lot)
  • Tank's Speedway Recycling & Landfill Facility: 7301 E Speedway
  • Tank’s Ina Land Reclamation Facility: 5300 W. Ina Rd.

The City of Tucson will not collect trees from curbs and alleys.
