Christmas tree recycling drop-off locations open this weekend

SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 6, 2016) – The City’s Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) wants to remind San Antonio residents that this weekend 17 drop-off locations will be available for residents to recycle their live Christmas trees.

The locations will be open Jan. 9 and 10 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. If a resident is unable to attend one of the sites during this allocated time, they may recycle their Christmas tree at the Bitters Brush Recycling Facility, 1800 Bitters Road, or the Nelson Gardens Brush Recycling Facility, 8963 Nelson Rd, through the end of January during their regular business hours.

SWMD reminds residents with a green organics cart that they may recycle the tree in the cart as long as it completely fits in the cart with the lid closed. In addition, SWMD encourages San Antonio residents to help keep our community clean by not illegally dumping trees before the sites open and not placing them at the curb.

For more information on the site locations, visit www.sanantonio.gov/swmd. You can also obtain information on SWMD’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SASOLIDWASTE or call 3-1-1.
