The St. Charles County Division of Environmental Health and Protection invites residents to recycle natural Christmas trees after the holiday.
The division partners with several local organizations to provide convenient drop-off locations. When recycled, natural trees can be used as fish habitat in area lakes, chipped wood paths along natural surface walking trails, mulch and more.
Residents must remove the tree stand, all decorations, lights and any packaging before bringing trees to any of the following locations for recycling:
St. Charles County Recycle Works
Both locations are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Dec. 28 to Jan. 9 — closed Jan. 1–3
Please Note: Holiday light strands, cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, electronics and other materials can be recycled at Recycle Works facilities. For information on all materials accepted at these facilities, please call 636-949-1800 or visit sccmo.org/RecycleWorks.
