Christmas tree composting now available at Rodeo Lot

Snowmass Village residents can now drop off this year’s Christmas trees for composting in the dumpster located at the Rodeo Lot near Town Park.

The composting drop-off site remains open through Jan. 10 for bare trees. Residents must remove all decorations first, including ornaments, tinsel, garlands and lights; any non-compostable materials dumped at the site will contaminate the entire bin.

The trees will ultimately be composted at the Pitkin County Landfill and will become available for the community to purchase and use.
