Live Christmas Trees can be dropped off at the following locations.  Please note that the Una Recreation location is here in District 29! Please share this information with neighbors. 
For the eighth consecutive year, Metro Public Works and Metro 
Parks and Recreation are partnering this holiday season to provide a convenient way for 
residents to recycle their live Christmas trees. 
Davidson County residents can bring their trees to one of 11 drop off sites, nine of 
which are inside Metro parks.  Public Works will collect the trees for mulching at the 
city’s Bordeaux Mulch Facility. All trees must be free of lights, ornaments, icicles, all 
tinsel and garland.  No flocked trees will be accepted.   
WHEN: December 27, 2012 to February 15, 2013
Recycling live Christmas trees into mulch, rather than dumping them in the trash, 
in an alley or along public roadways, keeps them out of landfills and helps save Metro the 
cost of disposal fees. Almost 18,000 Christmas trees are recycled each year through the 
drop-off program.
Natural brown mulch, made from Christmas trees and yard brush, is sold at the 
Bordeaux facility for eleven dollars a cubic yard.  The facility is open Monday-Saturday 
from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.  (No mulch sales after 12 noon on Saturdays.) For more 
information, call 862-8640 or visit
