Find Out Where to Recycle Your Live Christmas Tree

Here's where you can recycle your tree in Marion, Johnson, Shelby, Hamilton, Hancock, and Hendricks Counties.

INDIANAPOLIS -- You may be one of those people who plans to take down your Christmas tree on Dec. 26, or you may procrastinate for a few weeks. Either way, you may be eligible for curbside recycling of your live Christmas tree or you can drop off your live tree to be recycled.

Before you drop off your tree, make sure all tinsel, lights, decorations and tags have been removed. 

Most drop off locations are for residents of that city or county only. Trees from businesses are not accepted at most drop off locations.
