2016 Christmas Tree Recycling
2016 CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING
January 9th & 16th
The City of Corpus Christi Solid Waste Operations and the Clean City Committee advises citizens from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 9th and Saturday, January 16th, there will be an opportunity to recycle Christmas trees at eight convenient locations. The collection sites will be staffed by volunteers who will help unload trees. In return, those dropping off trees will receive a free tree seedling, based on availability. Only clean, non-flocked (fake snow) Christmas trees with no decorations will be accepted.
The following locations will be accepting Christmas trees from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 9th:
- Wal-Mart – 4109 S. Staples
- Wal-Mart – Greenwood & SPID
- Wal-Mart – Calallen
- Wood River Community Association – 4410 Wood River Drive
The following locations will be accepting Christmas trees from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 16th:
- Wal-Mart – 6101 Saratoga
- Wal-Mart – Flour Bluff Drive
- Flour Bluff High School – 2525 Waldron Road (High School Gymnasium parking lot)
- Padre Island Property Owners Association – 14015 Fortuna Bay Drive (across from Billish Park)
Citizens not participating in this effort may only set-out trees during their regularly scheduled brush collection days, not any sooner. For set-out dates, please refer to the 2015 Solid Waste Services Customer Guide or check online at www.cctexas.com/government/solid-waste-services. If residents want to throw it out sooner they will have to take it to one of the tree recycling events or to the J.C. Elliott Collection Center on Highway 286 at Ayers, Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Beginning February 2016, residents may visit the J.C. Elliott Collection Center to collect freshly ground Christmas tree mulch.
Volunteers are needed to help unload trees at all locations. Community service certificates will be provided for completed shifts. For more information contact Solid Waste Operations Outreach Coordinator, Celina Ybarbo Pulcher at (361) 826-1655 or at Celina@cctexas.com.
