Recycle your Holiday Tree after Christmas!

Dec 13, 2016 - 11:50 am




PARD in partnership with Austin Resource Recovery and the Austin Community Court, is sponsoring the 32nd Annual Christmas Tree Recycling event at Zilker Park. 

This year we shortened the days since Christmas will fall on Sunday (see dates below), but we will be accepting trees to turn into mulch over two weekends like in the past.

TIMES: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  • Saturday, December 31, 2016 
  • Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017***  (This is a “self-drop off” day)
  • Saturday, Jan. 7, 2017
  • Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017

***   On Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017  the  Public will be able to self-drop off their trees.  We are not sure if anyone will come out to drop off trees on New Year’s Day, but we may have a few people on site just to monitor in case we do.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Christmas Tree Recycling event this year please email Joe Washington at, indicating the day and time that will work best for you.
