Christmas Tree Recycling
December 26, 2019 – January 15, 2020
at CARRS/Safeway stores

‘Twas the week after Christmas
And all through the night,
Tree needles were dropping
The tree looked a sight!

So off with the baubles
And off with the lights,
To CARRS we will go
To recycle it right!

ALPAR and Municipality of Anchorage Solid Waste Services invite you to recycle your live Christmas tree at Anchorage, Eagle River, or Palmer CARRS/Safeway stores – just look for the designated drop off area.

Trees must be free of all decorations and lights, and no wreaths, please!

Trees are turned into wood chips for trails, gardens and parks.

The program ends January 15th, 2020.

For a small donation, you can even get your tree picked up.
Just call 868-8899.
