LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Christmas has come and gone, but is your tree still hanging around?

Christmas trees and tree debris from the recent winter storm can be dropped off at one of three locations:

  • Kids Zone on Northwest 38th Street and Meadow Brook Drive.
  • Elmer Thomas Park at Northwest 2nd Street and Ferris Avenue.
  • City of Lawton Landfill at 8902 SW 11th St.

You can drop off your trees and tree debris at Kids Zone or Elmer Thomas Park from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. between Jan. 4 and Jan. 8, or they can be taken to the landfill during normal business hours.

All of the trees will be mulched to save space in the landfill or used for city landscaping projects.

There is also a call-in service for Lawton residents that are unable to get their trees or debris to any of the drop off locations. Simply call 580-581-3413 or 580-581-3428 Jan. 4-8 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to be put on a collection list. The service is provided to all Lawton residents with priority going to the elderly, disabled or people without the means to transport tree limbs.

The call-in service is only for tree debris from the winter storm.

Tree debris should be in stacks no larger than 6’ in any direction.
