Indy Christmas Tree Recycling Ends Sunday

The live tree recycling program offered by the Indianapolis Department of Public Works (Indy DPW) and Indy Parks is coming to an end on Sunday, January 31, 2021.

Now through this weekend, residents can continue to drop off live trees at eight different locations. Trees must be free of ornaments, tinsel, tree stands, and all other decorative materials. Trees should be dropped off only at the specially designated area within the park and only between dawn and dusk.

Drop-off locations are as follows:​

  • Broad Ripple Park (1610 Broad Ripple Avenue)
  • Ellenberger Park (5301 East St. Clair Street)
  • Garfield Park (2432 Conservatory Drive)
  • Krannert Park (605 South High School Road)
  • Northwestway Park (5253 West 62nd Street)
  • Perry Park (451 East Stop 11 Road)
  • Riverside Park (2420 East Riverside Drive)
  • Sahm Park (6801 East 91st Street)

The Indianapolis live tree recycling service recycles trees for sustainable landscaping resources, such as mulch and soil blends.

The live tree recycling program is not for commercial use and is solely for Marion County residents.

After the live tree recycling service ends on Sunday, residents still looking to dispose of trees are encouraged to contact a private landscaper or tree service personally for mulching. Trees should not be placed in standard trash carts unless they have been cut to an appropriate size and secured in bags as yard waste.

Carmel Community Shredding and Electronics Recycling Day April 29

Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 9:07 AM

CARMEL, IN – Last year, more than 13 million Americans were victims of identity theft. That’s about one person every 2 seconds. To help fight fraud, a handful of community groups are joining together for a document-shredding, electronics-recycling, bulk-item, and drug disposal event on Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Creekside Middle School, located on the southeast corner of West 126th Street and Shelborne Road.

SHREDDING – Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes today and most identity information is still obtained through hard copy paper sources. Shredding significantly reduces your risk when disposing of confidential information. It is recommended that you shred any documents that include a signature, account number, social security number, medical or legal information. This professional shredding is sponsored by Shred-it to benefit Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana. A donation is requested of $5 per bankers sized box or equivalent.

RECYCLING – The recycling drop-off event will be managed by Technology Recyclers. The following items will be accepted: Computers, servers, peripherals, wiring, cable, battery backups, monitors, TVs ($10 charge per monitor or TV); all electronics, phones, stereos, headsets, DVD players; any small appliance; IT equipment including hubs, switches, servers, routers, racks, etc; office equipment including fax machines, copiers, phone systems, industrial electronics, test equipment, medical equipment; and large appliances including refrigerators and freezers.

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS – Properly removing unused and expired medicines from the home helps protect the environment and our community by keeping them out of our water supply and reducing accidental poisoning and prescription drug abuse. Uniformed officers will be accepting pharmaceuticals for proper disposal.

BULK ITEMS – As part of the City of Carmel’s trash program with Republic Services, the drop-off of bulky items will be available free of charge to trash customers (This is for City Trash Customers only; an ID or utility bill required). Examples of items to drop off include lawn equipment, carpet, furniture, grills (but no propane tanks), water heaters, swing sets, mattresses, etc. Space is limited and on a first-come, first served basis. No liquids, toxic, landscape waste or tires. No electronic waste in bulk item disposal. Those items will be accepted in electronics recycling.
