From Dec. 27-Jan. 28, Christmas trees, garlands and spruce tops may be recycled for free at the SMSC Organics Recycling Facility, 1905 Mystic Lake Drive South in Shakopee. It's open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays-Fridays except for closing on New Year's Eve and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Details are on the SMSC blog.
If you want your Christmas tree picked up curbside, please contact your trash hauler for options. Haulers have various requirements and fees, so make sure to check first before putting your tree out.
Do not put your tree in your organics bin.
Of note, Hennepin County doesn't operate a drop-off site for Christmas trees.
