Christmas tree recycling at rodeo lot until Sunday

The town of Snowmass is encouraging residents to drop off their old Christmas trees at the town’s tree recycling center for composting.

The composting dumpster will be located at the rodeo lot. Snowmass residents may drop trees off anytime until Sunday.

The town asks residents to ensure their tree is clear of all lights, ornaments, tinsel and other products that cannot be composted. Dumping these types of items into the container will contaminate the collection, according to the town.

All of the Christmas trees will then be composted at the Pitkin County Landfill. The compost will ultimately be available for the community to purchase and use.
