Christmas Tree Recycling

The first two weeks in January of each year, we have drop off locations for live Christmas trees. We mulch them and the mulch is available back to our customers.

  • This is for live trees only
  • If your tree is over 6 ft, cut it in half 
  • Remove all lights, decorations, and stands, even wooden ones
  • Do not bag trees
  • No live wreaths, garlands, or plants accepted

Approximately two weeks after each of these events, Christmas tree mulch will be available at the Bitters Brush site for FREE while supplies last. 

* In accordance with the city’s Tarp Law, Chapter 14 - Section 18 of the San Antonio City Code (Ordinance No. 2015-09-10-0760), residents must cover brush loads with a tarp or a $5 penalty may be assessed.
