Recycle Natural Christmas Trees

Sunday, December 26, 2021

The St. Charles County Division of Environmental Health and Protection encourages residents to recycle their natural Christmas trees after the holiday. When recycled through convenient drop-off locations around the county, natural trees can be used as fish habitat in area lakes, chipped wood paths along natural surface walking trails, mulch and more.

In addition to natural trees, residents may recycle holiday light strands, cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, electronics, traditional recyclable items and other material through the County’s Recycle Works locations in St. Charles and Wentzville. For information on accepted goods, call 636-949-1800 or visit
