Information on proper Christmas tree disposal for Jacksonville residents

Updated:

The City of Jacksonville has provided the following information for residents looking to dispose of their Christmas trees:

Christmas trees surely are nice decorations, but their improper disposal can be a problem. Illegal dumping, especially at area schools, is the biggest problem. Please DO NOT DUMP CHRISTMAS TREES AT SCHOOLS; IT IS ILLEGAL! Proper disposal is  simple if you follow these directions:

For residents who already have curbside recycling and yard waste collection (single-family households through quad-plexes), it's free and easy. Just set your unbagged tree out on your regularly scheduled yard waste collection day. Make sure to remove the tree stand, all decorations and ornaments, and no bags, please!

For residents who do not have curbside recycling and yard waste collection (e.g., apartment and condominium-dwellers), trees can be taken to a yard waste facility as listed below:

Old Kings Road Landfill
