The Las Vegas Valley has over 30 locations to drop off your real Christmas trees to be recycled. In partnership with Springs Preserve, the UNLV Rebel Recycling Program, and dozens of other local conservation organizations, the annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program returns to the community, December 26 through January 15.
Residents of Summerlin are again encouraged to recycle their real Christmas trees once the holidays are over. Summerlin’s longtime participation in this program is a natural fit. This master-planned community is dedicated to creating more sustainable development and has long embraced conservation and environmental actions and lifestyles.
Through January 15, Summerlin residents can drop off their real Christmas trees at two Summerlin locations: the lot adjacent to RC Willey Home Furnishings, 3850 S. Town Center Dr., just south of the 215 Beltway; and the Las Vegas Ballpark South parking lot in Downtown Summerlin. Entry to the tree lot is off Spruce Goose Street. Look for “Christmas Tree Recycling” signage at both locations.
Residents of Summerlin’s northern villages may opt for a drop point just outside of the master-planned community, at nearby Bruce Trent Park on Vegas Drive. All locations are open 24 hours.
There is no cost to drop off trees; however, you must remove all decoration objects such as lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments, and nails before dropping off trees. Artificial trees and real trees flocked with decorative chemical compounds cannot be recycled.
The trees are chipped into organic mulch and used in public gardens and parks across the valley to help conserve soil moisture and keep plants healthy. Most importantly, recycled trees are kept out of our community’s landfills.
Since the Christmas Tree Recycling Committee started tracking trees in 2011, more than 260,000 trees have been diverted from the landfill, creating more than 2,265 tons of mulch used for landscaping projects and dust control throughout our valley. For more information about the Christmas Tree Recycling Program, visit www.springspreserve.org. The program, organized by the Southern Nevada Christmas Tree Recycling Committee, runs from Dec. 26 through Jan. 15.
Drop-off sites are managed by the recycling committee, a partnership of businesses and community organizations, including UNLV’s Rebel Recycling program and Springs Preserve.
Residents who are unable to drop off their trees can pay Move It $25 to have them picked up and recycled. Visit gomoveit.com and use the code “Tree25” for the discounted rate.
