Holiday Trees

What to do with holiday trees

When it's time to take down your holiday tree or greenery, there are several options available for natural and artificial trees. 

Natural holiday trees

Natural holiday trees and greenery can be recycled at multiple drop-off locations throughout the Kansas City metro area starting Dec. 26 and running through January every year. They can also be recycled year-round at yard waste drop-off sites.

Artificial trees

Artificial trees and greenery that are clean and in good working order can be donated to thrift stores. 

Broken artificial trees and greenery should be disposed of in the trash.
