Recycle Your Holiday Tree for Free

Dayton, Ohio (Dec. 27, 2018) – From now until Jan. 31, 2019, the Montgomery County Solid Waste District will recycle leftover live trees free of charge.

“The Holiday Tree Recycling Program is enormously popular, because it offers citizens an easy, inexpensive, environmentally conscious way to dispose of their trees after the holidays,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Judy Dodge. “By turning these trees into mulch, we are reducing the waste that is sent to local landfills.” 

The trees should be clear of ornaments, tree stands, nails, and plastic bags. These trees will be recycled into mulch by a local contractor. Montgomery County residents may bring in up to three trees per vehicle for recycling at no charge through January 31, 2018. Any additional trees and general trash will be charged at the standard disposal rates. 

The Montgomery County Solid Waste District Transfer and Recycling Facility is located at 1001 Encrete Lane, Moraine, Ohio. The facility’s hours of operation are from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
For additional information, please visit or call (937) 225-4999 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
