County Christmas tree chipping project

The County Public Works Department and Town of Friday Harbor are sponsoring a free Christmas tree collection program at the solid waste facilities on each island. Trees will be chipped for mulch and not sent to a landfill.

Help us reduce the volume of holiday trash by bringing clean, undecorated natural trees (no flocked or artificial trees) to your island’s solid waste facility between Dec. 27 and Jan. 10 during regular open hours.

Last year’s chipping program diverted approximately three tons of Christmas trees from the landfill.

Call San Juan County Public Works Department at 370-0503 with questions.
