Starting December 26, the City of Austin curbside customers can recycle their Hanukkah bushes, Christmas, and holiday trees by leaving them at the curb on their regular collection day. Do not dispose of trees in greenbelt areas. All other residents can drop trees off at Zilker Park. The tree drop-off option is provided as an annual partnership between Austin Resource Recovery and Austin Parks and Recreation Department and is offered two weekends in a row at Zilker Park in an effort to keep thousands of trees out of the landfill and give them a second life as mulch. The mulch is then offered for free, on a first-come, first-served basis.
