Due to extreme heat and drought, SAWS is experiencing a record number of water main breaks. We are working 24/7 to make repairs, taking necessary heat-related safety precautions. Thank you for your patience.

Recycle Your Christmas Tree

After the holidays, recycle your Christmas tree into nutrient-rich mulch for free.

These City of San Antonio recycling locations will accept Christmas trees for free throughout the month of January:

  • Bitters Brush Recycling Center, 1800 E. Bitters Rd.
  • Nelson Gardens Brush Recycling Center, 8963 Nelson Rd.

You can also compost a real Christmas tree by placing it in your green city organics bin, as long as it completely fits in the cart with the lid closed. Be sure to remove all lights, decorations and stands.
