​ Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring Christmas trees to county disposal facilities?

You cannot recycle trees at Silverdale, Hansville, and Olalla facilities, but they will be accepted as garbage.

You can recycle unflocked tree at Olympic View Transfer Station, but you must bring it separately from other waste to receive the discounted yard waste fee. If you bring a tree along with other garbage, the entire load is disposed as garbage.

Will my garbage hauler pick up my tree?

If you subscribe to curbside compost service, simply cut your tree until it fits into your container. 

Trees left at the curb will be charged as extra garbage and will not be recycled.

Why can't I recycle flocked trees?

It can be difficult to tell what flocking material is actually made from. Tree recyclers do not want to risk adding harmful chemicals to their soil and mulch products. Flocked trees should be taken to a disposal facility. Or cut the flocked tree into pieces and add small pieces to your garbage weekly until it's gone.

What happens to the trees that are collected?

Trees are chipped to become mulch or compost, some of which is used to grow more local Christmas trees.
