Christmas Tree Recycling

Once again, the Baum Grove Parklet will serve as one of the twelve drop-off locations for Pittsburgh's Christmas Tree Recycling Program, which transforms recycled trees into pine mulch in the springtime. 


Baum Grove Parklet is located at 400 Roup Ave., behind the Aldi on Baum Boulevard. Trees can be left in the area by the stage, and please remove all decorations, plastic bags, and tree stands. (Trees left at the curb are sent to a landfill.)


The Baum Grove site will be open for residents to drop-off their Christmas trees seven days per week from 6:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. from December 26th, 2019 - January 26th, 2020. For more information, please visit: www.pittsburghpa.gov/dpw/xmas-tree-recycling
