Tree Disposal

Antioch Treecycling

As we near the end of the holiday season, we understand that residents need a way to dispose of Christmas trees. Antioch Residents and businesses have several options listed below. 

  • Drop-off Locations: Drop off unflocked trees 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 2, 2022, and Saturday -  Sunday, Jan. 8 - 9, and Jan. 15 - 16, 2022, in the designated areas at the Antioch Water Park parking lot and at the Antioch Marina Overflow parking lot at 2nd and L streets. Please remove tree stands before drop-off. 
  • Boy Scouts: The Boy Scouts will collect holiday trees Saturday-Sunday, Jan. 8 – 9, and Jan. 15 – 16, 2022, by prearrangement ONLY. Please email the Boy Scouts at [email protected] for details
    about when and where to have your tree collected. Donations of $10 or $1 per foot if taller than 8 feet for
    unflocked trees or $20 for flocked trees, payable to BSA, would be appreciated.
