The City of Arvada is offering three convenient drop-sites for residents to recycle Christmas trees free of charge. Your tree will be turned into valuable mulch and soil builder to nourish future trees.
The City Parks Maintenance Shop at 7800 W. 62nd Avenue is accepting trees from December 26, 2015 thru January 25, 2016, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Lake Arbor Lake Park at 6400 Pomona Drive and the Lutz Sports Complex at West 58th Avenue and Miller Street are also accepting trees. They do not have restricted days or times for drop-off and will be accepting trees through January 25, 2016.
PLEASE make sure the tree is free of nails, wire and all decorations to ensure safety of the City staff handling the trees. Remember, only Christmas trees are accepted - no garlands, wreaths, or yard waste - and no business or commercial use.
If you are interested, mulch will be available free of charge at all drop-site locations; residents will be responsible for loading and hauling of mulch. For more information on the Christmas tree mulching program or how to use mulch in your landscape, call the Parks Department at 720-898-7410.
