Easy to Recycle During Holidays

Does your trash overflow during Christmas? Americans typically generate 25% more waste during the holidays, and most of that is recyclable. While bows, ribbons and shiny or foil papers are NOT recyclable, other holiday waste can easily be recycled.


Branson’s full service recycle 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 can assist you from 7-2, Monday through Saturday. 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).
  • Catalogues, 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. No Styrofoam. You keep the lids, please.


For more information about recycling call 337-8559, or go to bransonmo.gov or Branson Environment and Recycle on Facebook.

Christmas Tree Recycling: Real Christmas trees may be recycled through Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery just below Table Rock Dam, from December 26 to January 15th. 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.
  • Tree drop off site near boat ramp at fish hatchery, available 24 hours. Look for green “Tree Recycling” signs.
  • For directions to the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery, or more information about the tree recycle program call (417) 334-4865 Ext. 0.

Hansen’s Tree Service (417-272-8733) in Reeds Spring also provides a free Christmas tree disposal site. Another option for landowners is to place your old Christmas tree in your pond for fish habitat.
