Turn Christmas trees into beneficial mulch

Recycled Christmas trees provide mulch for trees and planter beds in City Parks.  Last year, 5,000 Christmas trees were chipped and recycled into 500+ cubic yards of mulch.

The City of Loveland provides three convenient drop-off sites for Christmas trees:

  • Centennial Park (south Loveland) located at West 1st and Taft (in the parking lot North of First Street, West of Swift Field)
  • The Loveland Recycling Center (west Loveland) with a current Yard Waste permit (off First Street and Wilson Avenue)
  • Kroh Park (north Loveland) located at North 287 and 52nd Street (adjacent to the Habitat for Humanity office). 

Tree recycling makes tree disposal easy for residents, reduces landfill waste and provides needed mulch for Loveland’s parks. Please remove all ornaments, tinsel, lights, nails, screws, wire, tree stands and bags before dropping your tree.

This service is free of charge to the public and the park drop-off sites are open daily from sun-up to sun-down from Dec. 22 to Jan. 31.  Signs will direct participants to appropriate drop-off areas.
