Wondering what to do with your tree now that the holidays have passed?
Feel free to bring your live trees to any of the Environmental Services Department’s five Citizen Collection Stations, located at the following addresses:
1034 Pendale (East)
4200 Delta (South)
121 Atlantic (West)
4501 Hondo Pass (Northeast)
2492 Harrison (Central)
The trees will be recycled and turned into mulch which will then be available to all ESD residential customers at no charge! How great is that for our Spring spruce up just around the corner.
Please ensure that all decorative items are removed from the tree before dropping off. The Citizen Collection Stations will be open from 8am to 4pm. Citizen Collection Stations also accept household trash, bulky items, tires (without rims), used electronics, and household hazardous waste. If residents are dropping off any of the items mentioned above, they will need to bring a recent water bill and an I.D. matching the name on the bill. Residents will NOT need an I.D. or water bill to access the collections stations if they are only dropping off a tree.
Other Holiday Recyclables:
Besides fresh trees, residents are also encouraged to recycle their cardboard gift boxes, wrapping paper, and holiday cards, all of which are accepted in their blue recycling bins. Materials that cannot be recycled include: metallic wrapping paper, bows, ribbons, and foam. These items should be placed in the gray trash bin.
For more information on the Citizen Collection Stations or other services offered by Environmental Services, please visit www.elpasotexas.gov or call 311.
