Starting December 25, the Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) and Indy Parks will accept live Christmas trees for recycling at multiple drop-off points in public parks throughout the city. Through Monday, January 31, 2022, residents can drop off live trees at eight different locations. Two locations convenient for Midtown residents include Broad Ripple Park, 1610 Broad Ripple Ave. and Riverside Park, 2420 E. Riverside Drive. Trees must be free of ornaments, tinsel, tree stands, and all other decorative materials. Trees should be dropped off only at the specifically designated area within the park, and only between dawn and dusk.
