2018 Pittsburgh Christmas Tree Recycling
The City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works has announced that the Christmas tree recycling program will be available again this year. Residents can take trees to the following drop-off locations to have the tree composted at no cost.  
For a tree to be composted at a drop-off location, all ornaments, lights and stands must be removed. Trees in plastic bags or netting will not be accepted. Christmas trees set out at the curb for refuse pick-up will be sent to the landfill.
