Christmas Tree Recycling Drop Off

The DeKalb Park District will host a Christmas Tree Recycling program this season!

Drop off your tree in the designated area at Hopkins Park and we’ll mulch it! You may drop off your tree anytime between December 30th and February 9th.

Please make sure all trees are real and that they clear of any decorations and lights.

Exact drop off location is posted in the comments and a banner will be up after the first of the year.
