Christmas Tree Roundup Provides an Eco-Solution for Fresh-Cut Trees


Irving, Texas. December 28, 2020

After the flurry of gift giving, residents will have an opportunity to properly dispose of fresh-cut Christmas trees for recycling during Irving’s annual Christmas Tree Roundup.

Fresh-cut Christmas trees will be collected as part of Irving’s regular weekly brush/bulky waste pickup Dec. 28 to Jan 15. Weekly brush/bulky waste collection is offered the same day as curbside recycling. To learn more about curbside recycling and weekly brush/bulky waste collection, visit or call (972) 721-8059.

Residents also can bring Christmas trees to any of the following drop-off locations at the designated area Dec. 28 to Jan. 15:

  • Cottonwood Creek, 4051 N. Story Road
  • Hunter Ferrell Landfill, 110 E. Hunter Ferrell Road (hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily; closed Dec. 24-25 and Jan. 1)
  • Las Colinas Service Center, 5964 Riverside Drive (southern section of the parking lot)
  • Southwest Park, 2800 W. Shady Grove Road

Whether placing trees at the curb or dropping off, residents must remove all decorations, such as tree stands, lights, tinsel, nails and ornaments. Plastic bags covering the tree also must be removed. All fresh-cut Christmas trees collected as part of this program will be mulched and made available for a nominal fee at the Hunter Ferrell Landfill.

Reminder from the Irving Fire Department: "Remove your Christmas tree immediately after the holiday even if you think it is not dry.  Keeping a dry tree is like inviting a forest fire into your home."
