Recycle your Christmas Tree Through Jan. 15, 2022

December 27, 2021

Oceanside residents can recycle their Christmas trees curbside until January 15, 2022. Please remove tree stands and decorations before either:

1) Placing your tree next to your green waste bin on your regular collection day.

2) Or cutting your tree in half and placing it in your green waste bin on your regular collection day, with the lid closed.

Waste Management requires that flocked trees be disposed of through normal landfill service. Please cut flocked trees into pieces before being placed in the grey landfill bin, with the lid closed.

Christmas trees placed by the curb are collected in a separate truck by Waste
Management, and may not align with the collection times of the other Waste Management carts.

Residents may also drop off trees at the El Corazon Compost Facility (3210 Oceanside Blvd.) during open hours, to be recycled.
