City offers annual Christmas tree recycling events

Small tree seedlings will be available on a first come, first-serve basis

The City of Round Rock encourages residents to recycle their Christmas trees on Saturday, Dec. 28, 2019 and Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Round Rock Brush Recycling Center located at 310 Deepwood Drive.

The City will give away small tree seedlings (100 per day/one per vehicle) and provide volunteers to help unload trees for residents who bring their Christmas trees for recycling during these special events. Additionally, residents may bring their Christmas trees for recycling to the Round Rock Brush Recycling Center during any regular operating day.

Residents must remove all decorations, nails, wires, ornaments, tree stands, lights, and tinsel before bringing their tree to the recycling center. Trees will be shredded into a fine, usable mulch which is free to Round Rock residents for pickup at the recycling center. The mulch can also be purchased by contractors and non-residents for $5 per cubic yard. The center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The center is closed on Sundays.

Local businesses can also drop off their Christmas trees, and for a small fee ($15 per truckload), businesses that sell Christmas trees can recycle their leftovers as well.
