City of San Marcos offers two convenient Christmas tree disposal options for residents through January. All trees must be natural and free of ornaments, decorations, lights, tree stands, bags, and artificial snow.
Open to all residents at the Parks & Recreation Dept (401 E Hopkins). Trees collected at the drop-off will be turned into mulch, available for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Mulch is self-service only. Please bring your own tools and bags.
Curbside Pick Up:
Available for City of San Marcos Residential Garbage Customers. Place your tree curbside next to your Green Waste cart on your Green Waste collection day. Trees 4 feet or taller must be cut in half. Visit the Residential Curbside Services page to look up your Green Waste collection day.
