X-mas Tree's

Hello Heathstead Community!

Tis the season to give your Christmas tree a second life and recycle it through the Douglas County Recycle program!  Recycling your tree reduces waste and greenhouse gas emissions. It also creates mulch, which is made available to Douglas County residents for FREE!

Douglas County and its local municipalities have multiple locations where you can drop off your tree:
  • Bayou Gulch, 4815 Fox Sparrow Road, Parker
  • Challenger Regional Park, 17299 E. Lincoln Ave., Parker
Please remove all ornaments, lights, tinsel, garland, plastic wrap, tree stands, wire, rope, nails, etc.

Also, please note that live trees with artificial snow sprayed on the branches cannot be mulched and will not be accepted.

For more information, please contact Douglas County Parks and Trails at 720-733-6990. Trees are accepted at the above locations any time from Dec. 26-Jan. 31.

Mulch will be available on site while supplies last. Click here for additional municipal tree recycling locations.
