Now that Christmas is in the rear view mirror, it’s time to toss out that tree.

Since curbside pickup of Christmas trees isn’t offered in Wichita Falls, the Sanitation Department has four designated locations for residents to dispose of natural Christmas trees:

  1. Lucy Park, on Sunset Lane off Seymour Highway - all the way at the back of the park near the tree farm - Open 24 hours
  2. Kiwanis Park, 4400 Southwest Parkway - Next to the Parks Maintenance Building at the entrance to the park - Open 24 hours
  3. City Transfer Station, 3200 Lawrence Road - open Mon-Fri 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, Sat 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
  4. City Landfill, 10984 Wiley Road - open Mon-Sat 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Note that no artificial trees will be accepted. All trees must be completely stripped of the tree stand, decorations and lights as they will be ground into mulch for use in City parks.

The program ends Monday, January 15th, but city residents will still be able to dispose of their trees free of charge at the Landfill or Transfer Station during normal operating hours.
