Christmas Trees

Recycling Christmas Trees

The City will be making two rounds picking up Christmas trees:

First opportunity for pickup starts on January 6th, 2020 at 7:00 am
Final opportunity for pickup starts on January 20th, 2020 at 7:00 am

Only Natural Christmas Trees placed curbside will be picked up by the City.  There will be no return trips for pickups and call-in requests at later dates will not be accepted.  Trees should not be buried in the snow. Wire, metal and plastic bags must be removed from the tree and disposed of separately.  Please understand that trees may not be picked up until sometime after these dates because of the time it takes to go through all the routes or being hampered by inclement weather or emergencies that may arise and take precedence.

Wreaths, which are normally tied with wire, should be disposed of in your weekly garbage.

Other options for Christmas tree disposal are:

  • Bring them to the Recycle Center with no wire, metal or plastic on them.
  • Cut them up in pieces no longer than 4 feet long, less than 50 pounds per piece, and place them at the road edge. Your garbage contractor will pick them up on your regular collection day. However, the tree cannot be buried in snow or they will not take it. This is not a preferred option since it is not recycling the Christmas tree.
