Christmas Tree Disposal!

Christmas tree disposal runs throughout the month of January! Residents can put their fresh Christmas trees to the curb by 7 am on their regular trash day.  Residents do not need to remove ornaments, tinsel, garland or other decorative items, and trees can be put to the curb with or without a tree bag.

Trees that are frozen to the ground or covered with snow will not be collected until they can be safely accessed by the driver. Large or heavy trees may have to be picked up by the bulk truck, and in those cases, trees will be collected within two days of the resident’s regular service day.

The service applies only to Christmas trees that have been used as indoor holiday décor. State law prohibits yard waste and vegetation from being disposed of in the landfill; however, the ban does not apply to Christmas trees. Artificial trees may be placed to the curb as a bulky item at any time of year.

Artificial Christmas trees can be out out as trash at any time of the year. Tree pieces may be placed in a bag or can (please follow the 50 lb weight limit) or the whole tree may be placed to the curb separately as one of the two bulky items each household is allowed per week.
