Christmas trees are being accepted for recycling at county transfer stations and landfills.

Trees are accepted daily, except on holidays, at the greenwaste drop-off areas of the Hanalei, Hanapēpē, Kapa‘a and Līhu‘e refuse transfer stations from 7:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and the Kekaha Landfill, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A drop-off point for tree recycling is also located at the Kaua‘i Nursery and Landscaping (KNL) on Kaumuali‘i Highway, in Puhi, seven days a week. Trees can be loaded onto a truck that’s parked in the KNL’s driveway.

The trees must be bare and free of flocking, tinsel, and ornaments when they are brought to all recycling locations.

County officials remind residents the greenwaste sites close during inclement weather conditions. For updates or more information, click here.
