Residents need to bring their own tools & storage containers.
Mulch from discarded holiday trees is now available for free on a first-come, first-served basis to Austin residents. Turf had sufficiently dried after recent rains so trees were shredded at the same location where they were collected at Zilker Polo Fields.
Residents will need to bring their own tools and storage containers for loading and transporting the mulch.
Annually, Christmas tree recycling keeps nearly 20,000 trees out of area landfills, which contributes to the City’s goal of reaching Zero Waste by 2040.
