Carlton County and area partners have kicked off the annual Treecycling program.  Residents are encouraged to recycle their fresh-cut Christmas trees during Treecycling, a free program with drop-off locations throughout the region.

“Christmas trees, like yard waste, are banned from landfills in Minnesota. Dispose of your trees properly by bringing them to a conveniently located Treecycling site,” said Karola Dalen, Carlton County resource and recycling coordinator, adding that collected trees can be reused as fuel or mulch.

Please remove all ornaments, lights, tree stands and tree bags before bringing trees to a Treecycling location.  

Bring your tree to one of these locations during the specified times and dates:

  • SAPPI Fine Paper (gatehouse entrance), East End Avenue B, Cloquet, from Dec. 26 to Jan. 15.                                                                                                                      

  • Moose Lake Compost Site (across from city garage) from Dec. 26 to Jan. 15.

  • WLSSD Yard Waste Compost Site, 2626 Courtland St., Duluth, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 22 to Jan. 31.

  • WLSSD Materials Recovery Center, 4587 Ridgeview Road, Duluth, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Dec. 22 to Jan. 31.
