Christmas Trees

When Christmas is over, many people start to take down their trees and look for a place to recycle them.

Remember: Before recycling, remove all lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments and other materials that are not a part of the original tree. Wreaths and swags can also be recycled, but take them off of the frames and wires.


In Clark County, the following options are available for recycling Christmas trees:

Curbside Collection

Clark County, Vancouver, Ridgefield, Camas, Battle Ground, Yacolt, and Washougal yard debris curbside recycling customers may set out tree (5 feet or less) in or next to their yard debris cart on regular yard debris collection day. The yard debris cart should be placed next to the tree. If tree is in addition to the 96-gallon limit of yard debris, a fee of $2.67 to $3.25 will be charged depending on your collection area.
