The City of Loveland is Recycling Christmas Trees at Three Convenient Drop-off Sites:

  • The Southern Site is Centennial Park located at West 1st and Taft Avenue 
    (in the parking lot north of First Street, just west of Swift Field)
  • The Western Site is at the Loveland Recycling Center
    (off of 1st Street & Wilson Avenue) Residents must provide a current Yard Waste Debris Permit in order to dispose of their Christmas tree for free at the Recycling Center. Please note that the Recycle Center is CLOSED on Mondays, and for the holidays of 12/25 & 1/1. Regular hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  This location does not benefit the mulch program for Parks & Recreation...(site is listed as a courtesy for residents who want to drop off their trees or branches without donating to mulch in parks)   
  • The Northern Site is Kroh Park located at North Highway 287 and 52nd Street
    (adjacent to the Habitat for Humanity location).

This service is FREE of charge to the public and open daily from sun-up until sun-down between December 21st, 2016 and January 31st, 2017.  Signs will direct participants to appropriate drop-off areas.

Please remove all ornaments, tinsel, lights, nails, screws, wire, tree stands and bags before dropping your tree.

Christmas tree recycling at the two parks locations provides mulch for trees and planter beds in the City parks. Last year, more than 5,000 Christmas trees were chipped and recycled into 500+ cubic yards of mulch.

For additional information on the Recycling Center drop-off location, please call: (970) 962-2529.  You may also direct questions about the two parks locations to the Parks & Recreation Administration Office at: (970) 962-2727.
