Free your tree after the holidays: CBJ offers free holiday tree recycling program Jan. 20-21

JDHS Cheer will also offer a pick up option

With the holidays in the rearview mirror, instead of trashing their trees, Juneau residents can give them a new round of life — as long as it’s also free of decorations — by dropping it off at City and Borough of Juneau’s Household Hazardous Waste facility a part of the city’s annual tree recycling program. According to a CBJ news release, the drop off program is scheduled for 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Jan. 20-21.

Residents also have the opportunity for tree pickup thanks to the Juneau-Douglas High School:Yadaa.at Kalé cheer team who will provide the service for a $10 requested donation and can contact Coach Nore by text at (907)723-6580 to sign up.

According to CBJ, wreaths or ‘tree-like’ decorations will not be accepted, and there are a few requirements for residents to keep in mind if they would like to participate in the program. The tree must be below 9 feet tall and less than 8 inches in diameter at the base, it must be free of any decorations or other right materials.

The dropped trees will be chipped and brought to Eaglecrest where they will be used for trail mediation, according to CBJ.
