Lake Metroparks offers convenient Christmas tree recycling drop off locations throughout Lake County. Trees are chipped and the chips then composted or used as mulch at various Lake Metroparks locations.
Tree bins will be installed at the parks listed below the week of December 16 and removed about January 16. Click on the park name for park information, including driving directions:
Lake Metroparks collaborates with other county agencies to collectively increase the amount of materials currently recycled in our community to equal previous levels, and then surpass that to set new records for materials recycled within Lake County.
