Christmas Trees

Christmas tree recycling is a way that Montgomery, Parke and Putnam County residents can give something back to the earth. By recycling these trees, residents can help divert trees from the landfill, provide a habitat for fish and wildlife, aid in erosion control, and provide mulch for flowerbeds and trees. The trees are also available for FREE to anyone who would like to use them for their ponds, lake or to stop erosion on their property. The parks or community affiliated with the collection sites will use the remaining trees.

Each year, West Central Solid Waste District is encouraging residents to recycle their Christmas Trees for FREE starting December 26th through the last Saturday in January.

Typically, the sites listed below participate each year. In order to be certain, check you local newspaper during the Christmas season or call and check with the location in your area:

  • Raccoon Lake (765) 344-1412 - Follow signs to Raccoon Lake State Recreation Area, 9 miles East of Rockville on Highway 36

  • Lieber State Park Recreation Area (765) 795-4576 - Office Parking Lot, 1317 W. Lieber Road, State Road 243, near park entrance

  • Rockville Lake Park (765) 569-6441 - Follow the signs at the park entrance on Marshall Road

These sites will always be available for Christmas tree recycling as long as the District continues to provide the program.
