For the first time in nearly a decade, the County of Maui will be offering free Christmas tree recycling.

All decorations must be removed, including tinsel and other materials, before the trees are accepted for recycling, according to the Department of Environmental Management.

The department is partnering with the Rotary Club of Upcountry Maui to offer a curbside pick-up service for Upcountry (Pāʻia, Haʻikū, Pukalani, Makawao, and Kula) residents from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020. A $10 to $20 donation per tree for the pick-up service will go toward supporting local Rotary projects.

Residents should call Richard Thompson at (808) 878-2177, by Jan. 3 to schedule a pickup.

Christmas trees will be accepted at the following locations:
