Free Christmas Tree Recycling at GROW Center

Greeley and Weld County residents can recycle their real, natural Christmas trees for free through Jan. 31 at the Greeley Organic Waste (GROW) Recycling Center.

At the GROW Recycling Center, staff grind the trees up and turn them into compost. The alternative is sending them to the landfill.

Residents need to remove all decorations, lights, wires, and similar materials before taking them to the GROW Center. The GROW Center is located at 1130 E 8th St., Greeley—1 mile east of U.S. 85 on East 8th Street.

Free Christmas tree recycling runs 10 a.m. through 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday, through Jan. 31.

Inclement weather may close the GROW Center. For more information about Christmas tree recycling, call 970-673-2042. For information on other recycling, opportunities go to
