The City will accept holiday trees for recycling at seven sites from Christmas Day through Sunday, January 13. The tree collection sites are:

• Ballard Park, 3901 N. 66th St.
• Oak Lake Park, three blocks south of Cornhusker on 1st
Street
• University Place Park, 50th and Garland streets
• Holmes Lake Park, parking lot west of the north softball field
• Tierra Park, 29th and Tierra Drive
• Woods Park, 31st and “J” streets, southeast corner of the parking lot
• Hofeling Enterprises, 2200 S. Folsom Court (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays)

Hofeling Enterprises has again donated grinding services, and the tree mulch will be distributed free to Lincoln residents beginning Monday, January 14. The mulch is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 2200 S. Folsom Court on a first-come, first-served basis.

The City Recycling Office reminds residents recycling their trees to remove plastic bags used for transport and put them in trash cans at the recycling sites. All nails, wires and tree stands must be removed.

The City of Lincoln began offering the tree recycling program in 1987 to keep large quantities of trees from going to the landfill. Lincoln’s tree recycling program is the oldest of its kind in Nebraska. In the last 25 years, the City has recycled an estimated 204,870 trees.

For more information on the tree recycling program or the City’s recycling program in general, call the Recycling Hotline at 402-441-8215 or visit recycle.lincoln.ne.gov.
