The City of Fayetteville and other local municipalities may offer Christmas tree recycling. Residents may contact their local municipalities or waste management providers for information regarding Christmas tree collection and recycling.

Please remove all lights, decorations and stands prior to recycling live Christmas trees.

Do not burn Christmas trees or their branches. Soft woods from fresh pines and firs are more flammable than seasoned hard woods. Fires generated by Christmas trees can rapidly burn out of control and create an accumulation of a combustible and potentially dangerous compound called creosote in fireplaces and chimneys.
