Christmas trees can be dropped every Saturday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. from Dec. 28, 2019, to Feb. 8, 2020, at 4501 Padre Boulevard.

South Padre Island residents may place their tree curbside anytime until Feb. 8, 2020.

All trees must have ornaments, lights, nails, and tree stands removed before recycling.

All recycled trees will be turned into mulch that can be used in gardens to safeguard plants from winter weather.

Mulch will be available for free on a first-come, first-served basis at the City of Port Isabel Public Works Department, located at 217 W. Hickman, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please bring your own tools and storage containers for loading and transporting the mulch.
