Need to get rid of that Christmas tree? You can recycle it on January 17 on Seneca Street in Buffalo, where you can also turn in electrics.

If you want to get rid of it before then, place the tree out with your regular garbage from January 5 to January 9. Do not put the tree into garbage bags and make sure it is free of ornaments and tinsel.

Your garbage may be picked up before the tree.

You can also drop off unwanted trees at these locations:

  • Cazenovia Park – golf course parking lot south of Seneca Street, at the foot of Wildwood
  • Shoshone Park – parking lot off of Hertel, at the foot of beard
  • 1120 Seneca Street – rear parking lot between Babcock and Smith

The drop-off sites are open 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. from Monday through Saturday beginning December 27 and ending January 17.
