Where and How to Recycle or Dispose of Christmas Trees in Wichita
Sedgwick County residents can recycle real Christmas trees for free!
When you’re ready to get rid of your Christmas tree, you can take it to one of more than 20 locations to have it turned into mulch. The program is run by Sedgwick County Environmental Resources.
While you’re there, you may also pick up free mulch — if it’s available — to use in your flowerbeds or compost piles. Mulching is done at various intervals and offered on a first-come basis.
Before you bring your Christmas tree in for recycling, be sure to remove all ornaments and other man-made adornments! 🙂
