Don’t Forget to Recycle this Holiday Weekend & Where to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Christmas recycle 2

The City of Branson would like to remind residents and guests of its 24/7 recycling service and encourages everyone to recycle during the holidays.

Wrapping paper, cardboard boxes, cans, plastic and glass containers used for food or beverages, like bottles and butter tubs, are all recyclable.

Branson’s full-service recycling center is located at 550 Compton Drive, across from the Branson Community Center.  Recycling is available 24/7 there and your items can be dropped off anytime. Staff will be there to assist you from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday after Christmas.  For directions, click here.

A convenient 24/7 recycle trailer is also available in the Branson United Methodist Church parking lot on Highway 76 for recycling anytime. 

Bring any of these items to either location for processing:

•           Cardboard boxes (please flatten), packaging, wrapping/tissue paper (no foil or shiny).

•           Catalogs, greeting cards, envelopes and any other kind of clean paper.

•           Tin cans, glass jars and bottles, aluminum cans.  Labels are okay and do not need to be removed.

•           All kinds of plastic food or beverage containers.  No Styrofoam.  You keep the lids, please.

Bubble wrap and packing peanuts can be recycled at any UPS store.  Branson UPS store is on Hwy 48 next to Pizza Ranch.

Plastic wrap, plastic film, plastic bags and small pieces of plastic like straws, candy wrappers and cutlery get tangled up in equipment and should be thrown in your trash or recycled at your local Target and Walmart entrances.  

Christmas Tree Recycling:   Real Christmas trees may be recycled at four locations.  The trees will be used for wildlife habitat and trail maintenance. (Trees with sprayed on flocking cannot be accepted.  All tinsel, decorations, and plastic bags must be removed. )

•           Hansens Tree Service in Reeds Spring

•           Sunny Hills Garden Center in Kirbyville

•           Springfield (Only) Bass Pro

•           Drury-Mincy Campground on Hwy J
