This year, the town of Avon will continue offering Christmas tree recycling for Avon residents. However, new this year is a specific location for drop off and limited hours for drop off.

In past years, the town has offered curbside Christmas tree recycling but due to staffing and workload constraints, the town has restructured the service. On every Saturday in January from 8 a.m. to noon, Avon residents may drop off their Christmas tree at 375 Yoder Ave., also known as Lot 5, just past The Home Depot. All trees must have lights and ornaments removed. There will be a clearly marked Christmas tree dumpster available to Avon residents, and all recycled trees will be chipped for mulch.

For more information, contact Gary Padilla, public works director, at 970-748-4118 or

Alternatively, people may take their Christmas trees to the Eagle County Landfill at no charge until Feb. 15, or to the EagleVail tree drop on Eagle Road past the fire station on the way to Homestake Peak School.

Recycled trees at the EagleVail location will also be chipped for mulch.
