Time to get rid of those Christmas trees

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Time to start thinking about getting rid of those Christmas trees and there are plenty of options around the Tri-Cities and Yakima.


Richland residents can take trees to the parking lots of Badger Mountain Park and the Richland public pool for free drop off. 

Kennewick and Benton County residents can drop off their trees at the Waste Management Transfer Station at 27th and Ely street for free through January. Just bring them during normal business hours.  

In Pasco there is no charge for tree pick-up within city limits, just set it next to your garbage can on your scheduled pick-up day. 

Walla Walla

If you live in Walla Walla the Boy Scouts will once again be helping pick-up your Christmas trees. They will be out January 8th and 9th. The Boy Scouts are the only option in Walla Walla unless you want to dispose of the tree yourself. Any money raised through donations will be going to help the scouts pay their way to summer camp.

To sign up for the service just email treepickup@troop305.net and include your address.


Camp Prime Time in Yakima has begun recycling Christmas trees.

From now through January 9th, you can take your tree to Barnett Implement off 31st and Fruitvale from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
