Tree Recycle

With the holiday season coming to an end, one of the big questions is how, where, and when you can recycle your Christmas Tree. Amador County has a free Christmas Tree Recycling program.

Throughout the month of January, trees can be dropped off anytime at the Westover Field Airport Parking Lot, 12380 Airport Road in Sutter Creek, at the Buena Vista Transfer Station, 6500 Buena Vista Road in Ione, daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or at the Pine Grove Transfer Station, 19801 Berry Street in Pine Grove, Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Christmas trees are recycled locally at Vicini Brothers Green Waste Recycling Facility and turned into mulch and nutrient rich compost.
