2022 Christmas tree recycling

HONOLULU -- The Department of Environmental Services (ENV) reminds residents to recycle their live Christmas trees properly following the holidays.

The city provides automated curbside green waste collection to more than 160,000 homes on O‘ahu. For those with green carts, please remove all Christmas tree decorations and cut the tree to fit inside the cart with the lid closed. Cut the tree into lengths up to three feet and trim branches to ensure it will fall freely from the cart during collection. Trees with tinsel or flocking should be cut, bagged, and disposed of in the gray cart.

For households on manual curbside collection, cut the tree into lengths up to three feet, bundle, and place at the curb on your normal refuse collection day. Residents may drop off whole Christmas trees at the nearest Refuse Convenience Center (except for Wahiawa Convenience Center) or at the Kapaa Transfer Station in Kailua. At no cost, residents may drop off trees with no flocking or tinsel at the composting facility in Wahiawa. Visit for more information on the city's disposal site locations.

Condominiums and commercial buildings may deliver large loads of Christmas trees directly to the composting facility -- tip fees will be waived over the holidays. To arrange these deliveries, please contact ENV's Refuse Division at 768-3200 (option 7).
