For nearly two decades, the Park Operations and Maintenance Division has recycled Christmas trees for Castle Rock residents.
Thanks to the resident participation, 2021 marked our highest number of trees recycled with 1,738 trees turned into mulch. The mulch is used in Town-owned parks and other landscaped areas.
Beginning in April, the mulch is also available to residents on a first-come, first-served basis through Oct. 31. The mulch can be picked up from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays at the Douglas County slash-mulch site at Caprice Drive.
