Tree Recycling Program

Citizens who wish to drop off their trees to be recycled may take them to the Streets Department Sanitation Convenience Centers open 8:00 am to 6:00 pm from Monday through Saturday.

*NW:  Wayne Ave & W Logan St or see below link

Locations are:

3033 S. 63rd Street                                     2601 W. Glenwood Avenue

Domino Lane & Umbria Street                  5100 Grays Avenue

State Road & Ashburner Street                  3901 N. Delaware Avenue

There will also be 23 designated locations to drop off Christmas trees throughout the city on Saturdays, January 7 and January 14 from 9am to 3pm.

*To find the location nearest to you, please visit http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/holiday

For a successful recycling program, residents should make sure that trees are free of all decorations and untied. Christmas trees with decorations cannot be recycled.  Christmas trees present a seasonal addition to the City’s waste stream.  By recycling them and returning them to the earth, we reduce our waste costs and create a valuable resource.

The Housing Rehabilitation Program purchases abandoned and foreclosed houses in Germantown, Mt.
