Holiday Greenery and Decorations

It’s that time of year when holiday decorations can become waste. Please note the following:
  • Ramsey County residents can recycle holiday trees at the four county yard waste sites that accept branches, trees and shrubs. Washington County residents can recycle these items at a designated drop-off site. (Due to the threat of Elongate Hemlock Scale, an invasive tree insect, it is recommended that trees and greenery be disposed of as soon as they have been removed from the home and not left outdoors.)
  • Holiday decorations, such as real and artificial holiday trees, wreaths and other greenery, are accepted at the R&E Center.
  • String lights can be recycled for free at the Ramsey County household hazardous waste site or the Washington County Environmental Center. When placed in the trash, string lights can wrap around our waste processing equipment and become a nuisance.
  • Decorations containing batteries must be disposed of correctly. Batteries can contain toxic metals and can pose a fire threat if disposed of improperly. Batteries of all types can be brought to the Ramsey County household hazardous waste site or the Washington County Environmental Center for free disposal.

Fire Rover
We’ve installed Fire Rover equipment at the R&E Center. This technology scans the tipping floor to detect abnormal hot spots. If a hot spot is detected, the system dispenses firefighting foam to prevent a fire. The new system is in operation 24/7.
