Tree Drop-off Collection Site

December 27 through January 31, residents of Glenwood Springs can drop off trees and fallen tree branches at the old rodeo grounds, adjacent to the airport. Before dropping off, remove all decorations, streamers, tinsel, glitter, tree stands and anything else that will not compost. Please do not dump trash or other debris at this site.

The service is free but is only open to residents of Glenwood Springs. The collection site is not available for use by commercial operators. Trees can be dropped off at any time of day with the site open 24 hours a day, seven days a week through January. Trees can also be dropped off any time of year at the South Canyon Landfill for a minimal fee.
