Christmas Tree Recycling Beginning January 8

Shelton Public Works crews will begin picking up Christmas trees for recycling on Monday, January 8

Please have your trees to the curb by 8 a.m. Trees should be clear of all decorations, including stands, lights, ornaments, and tinsel. 

City crews will be collecting trees within Shelton city limits only. Crews run the recycled trees through a chipper to create mulch.

Picking up all of the trees usually takes the crews a couple of days, so if your tree is still at the curb at the end of the day on Monday, please leave it and crews will pick it up the following day.

If your garbage pickup location is in an alley, you may also place your tree in the alley. Please make sure that trees are located at least 4 feet away from any garbage cans.
