Christmas Tree Recycling

The City of Murrieta is offering free, curbside pickup Monday, Dec. 26 to Friday, Jan. 6 for Christmas trees. The trees will be recycled and converted into mulch that will be used throughout Murrieta parks and open spaces. 

Residential curbside trash and recycling, and commercial pickup will remain on normal service schedule the weeks following Christmas and New Year’s Day. Customers are asked to place carts out for pickup on their normal service day. When placing trees for curbside collection, follow these guidelines:

  • Remove all decorations, includin tinsel, lights, ornaments and tree stands.
  • Trees taller than six feet must be cut in half and placed next to your green waste cart.

If you intend to dispose of your tree after the two week collection period, residents are asked to cut down the tree so that it fits inside the green waste cart, with the lid closed for collection.

Please note that flocked trees cannot be recycled and must be disposed of through regular trash service. Flocked trees must fit into the trash cart, with the lid closed for collection.
