LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Christmas trees can be recycled this year.

Trees must be free of metal bracing and nails and cannot be in a plastic bag.

For Lansing or East Lansing, click the links below to find out how to recycle your tree.


East Lansing

Meridian Township: Christmas trees may be dropped off to be recycling between Dec. 26 and Jan. 31 from dawn to dusk at the following locations.

  • Wonch Park - 4555 Okemos Road, Okemos
  • Nancy Moore Park - 2100 Gaylord C. Smith Court, Haslett

You can also place it at the curb for the City of Lansing to pick-up on normal collection day. All ornaments and plastic must be removed. If the tree is over 6 foot tall, you're asked to cut the tree in half.

If you have downed tree limbs from the ice storm and live in Lansing, the city says you should move your tree debris to the curb side for pickup.

The city has not announced an official plan for removing debris, but says extra crews will be used for the job. Storm related debris pick-up could be combined with the Christmas tree pickup program.
