After the holidays, the Buncombe County Landfill accepts real, fresh-cut Christmas trees at no charge from residents.
Please remove all of the decorations, ornament hooks, lights, garland, and tinsel, as well as the stand. The trees will be chipped and turned into mulch, so make sure that your tree is totally bare.
Christmas trees are only accepted at the Landfill. Commercial haulers and businesses will be charged the standard yard waste fee for Christmas trees. This fee is $20 per ton of yard waste.
