Christmas tree recycling

The Town of Pagosa Springs is again conducting a Christmas tree recycling program. Trees to be recycled can be dropped off at a newly-designated site at the south end of South Fifth Street any time before the end of March.

Look for the signs directing recyclers to the collection area. The parks department asks that recyclers remove all lights and ornaments before leaving your tree. The Parks Department will chip the collected trees into mulch to be used for landscaping projects during the coming season. Thank you for participating in this worthwhile undertaking.
