Christmas Tree Recycling

Give one last holiday gift to the environment by taking your live Christmas tree to one of three participating parks or the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Trees are then turned into mulch, which is made available to the public for pickup at the fairgrounds. The Christmas Tree Recycling program is a part of the Town’s overall Project Green environmental initiative.
