GALVESTON, Texas – When it’s time to pack away the ornaments and remove the lights, don’t trash your Christmas tree – recycle it! Christmas trees can be converted into mulch and provide benefits beyond the holidays. Galveston Partners in Composting—UTMB, the City of Galveston and Moody Gardens — encourages everyone to go green this holiday season by recycling their Christmas tree.  

Galveston’s Christmas Tree Recycling Drive runs now through January 20. All live evergreen trees, including flocked trees, will be accepted. To ready your tree for recycling, please remove all tinsel, lights, decorations and plastic or metal stands. Wooden tree stands will be accepted.

  • UTMB: December 23 – January 20
Please drop off trees at the open-top dumpster at the base of the water tower on the corner of Port Holiday Drive & Harborside Drive.
  • City Eco-Center: Now – January 20
Please drop off trees at the City’s Eco-Center, 702 61st Street. The facility will be closed January 2.
