Christmas Tree Recycling

The city is offering two Christmas Tree Recycling drop off locations.  The sites are available to accept trees for recycling 24 hours a day for free drop off from December 26th to February 3, 2019. 

The sites are:
Paws & Claws Care Center: 725 E Baseline Ave
Prospector Park: 3015 N Idaho Rd

Residents are asked to remove all nails, stands, tinsel, lights and ornaments from trees.  Flocked trees are not accepted because the flocking does not break down in the environment.

For questions about tree recycling, please contact us at 480-982-1055.

The City of Apache Junction invites and welcomes people of all abilities to use our programs, sites and facilities. Any question about our service for people with disabilities can be answered by the city's ADA Coordinator (480) 474-2635, TDD (480) 983-0095, or Additional information may be found at
