Christmas Tree Recycling & Mulch Giveaway

Every year, the City of Pittsburgh recycles used Christmas trees into free, natural mulch for City residents. In 2021, over 2200 Christmas trees totaling over 38 tons were diverted from the landfill! Residents will be able to pick up the pine mulch which is useful for vegetable gardens and other beautification projects. Residents interested in picking up mulch for their 2021 spring garden may attend four Saturday collection events but they must bring their own buckets, gloves and shovels.
