Christmas tree recycling

It’s beginning to look a lot like... cleanup time! Bring your recyclable Christmas tree to the Marana Operations Center on Ina Rd through Jan. 7, 2018 for free disposal.

The holidays are a busy time in Marana. With all of the hustle and bustle from holiday shopping, it can leave a bit of a mess. Now that the holiday shopping season has concluded, it is time to take to the streets and clean things up. 

Last week, the Town of Marana Street Department conducted a town-wide clean-up of business areas due to the heavy traffic from the holidays. Crews cleaned streets that were most heavily impacted from additional holiday shopping traffic. In addition, Town crews also undertook trash and debris clean-up of business areas. 

The final portion of the Town-wide clean-up was addressing any town right-a-way hazards.

For households and families with their own Christmas cleaning to do, Marana is hosting Christmas tree recycling at the Marana Operations Center at 5100 W. Ina Road from until Sunday, Jan. 7. A roll off dumpster has been placed outside the west gate of the facility, and is available 24 hours a day for all recyclable Christmas trees.

The town asks that residents only place old Christmas trees in the dumpster, no other items will be accepted. Please bear in mind that due to construction of the I-10 Interchange, there is no direct access from I-10 or via West Ina Road east of the freeway.
