Civic, nonprofit organizations offer several Christmas tree recycling locations in Philly

    Christmas only just came to a close, but many are already wondering where and, in some cases, how they’ll get rid of their tree.

    The City of Philadelphia offers a tree recycling program that runs from Tuesday, January 3 to Saturday January 14. The program allows you to take your tree to the Streets Department to be recycled. Click here for more information.

    More than 20 local civic and nonprofit organizations are also all working together to help you get rid of your tree.

    The website recyclenowphila.org has listed the dates and times of areas around Philadelphia where you can drop your tree off for recycling.

    The drop-off points, which open on Saturday, January 7 and close Sunday January 8, include areas in Fishtown, Society Hill, South Philadelphia and in northwest Philadelphia, among many others.

    “Recycle Now Philadelphia” says a $5 donation is suggested to help defray costs.
