Remove all Decorations

Please make sure that your tree is clear of all lights, ornaments, tinsel, and other non-compostable products. Dumping these items into the container will contaminate the entire collection.

Composting at the Landfill

All of the Christmas Trees that are collected will then be composted at the Pitkin County Landfill. The compost will ultimately be available for the community to purchase and use. Learn more about the composting process at
