Christmas Tree Recycle

El Paso County, the City of Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Utilities, Rocky Top Resources, Colorado Springs Gazette, Asplundh Tree Expert Co., and Colorado Springs Youth Sports will be operating a TreeCycle event to reduce landfilled tree waste, provide free mulch and support youth sports. For a suggested minimum donation of only $5 per tree, area residents can drop off trees at six convenient locations.

Colorado Springs Youth Sports is a charitable non-profit organization that operates the El Pomar Youth Sports Park. One hundred percent of donations received benefit area youth.

Trees and donations will be accepted at the following locations from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on December 29 & 30, 2018, and January 5 & 6, 2019, at:

  • Baptist Road Trailhead (Baptist Road & Old Denver Highway)
  • Falcon Trailhead (SW of Woodmen Road & McLaughlin Road)
  • Cottonwood Creek Park (Dublin Blvd. & Montarbor Drive)
  • Sky Sox Stadium (Barnes Road & Tutt Blvd.)
  • Rock Ledge Ranch (Gateway Road & 30th Street)
  • Memorial Park (Pikes Peak Avenue & Union Blvd.)

Additionally, trees and donations can be made at Rocky Top Resources (1755 E. Las Vegas Street) from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturdays over December 26-28 and January 2-31. Rocky Top Resources is closed on Sundays.
