Christmas Tree Recycling

Christmas trees can be recycled this year by dropping them off at Mitch Park by January 21, 2022. Trees are chipped, and free mulch is available for residents to pick up at Mitch Park after January 31, 2022. Please be advised that only one drop off location is available this year due to upgrades and renovations to the AC Caplinger Baseball Fields at Hafer Park. The project will not allow for a tree drop-off at this location as in previous years. 

Drop Off Location


Residents may drop off their Christmas tree at Mitch Park, in the north parking lot adjacent to Marilyn Williams Drive (east of the pavilion and playground).

Guidelines


The trees will be chipped, so please remove all tree stands, nails and ornaments.

Commercial accounts, Christmas tree lots and other businesses will also need to dispose of their trees by dropping them off at the Mitch Park drop-off location.

Schedule Tree Collection


If you can't drop off your tree, residential customers can schedule a special, free collection the week before January 10. Call the tree-cycling hotline at (405) 359-4701 between January 3 and January 7 to be placed on the schedule. Collection will be provided during the week starting Monday, January 10 and ending Friday, January 14.
 
When placing your tree out for collection, please do not cover your water meter.

Trees may not necessarily be picked up on normal trash collection day. So, those who have called the hotline must place their tree at the curb before 7:00 am Monday, January 10 to be included in this collection.

Self-Disposal


If You Miss the Special Collection:
  • Cut your tree into smaller pieces and place it in your cart for regular collection. Ensure that no debris is sticking out of the closed container.
  • Schedule a monthly, bulk collection for January by calling Utility Customer Services at (405) 359-4541 beginning January 3. The bulk collection fee is $10 per cubic yard for the first two cubic yards and $5 for each additional cubic yard.
  • Take your tree to the Transfer Station located at I-35 and Covell Road for disposal. The charge for disposal of a Christmas tree is $5.
