Christmas trees are 100 percent recyclable and can be collected starting Tuesday, December 26, 2023 through Friday, January 5, 2024.

To ensure the collection of your holiday tree: remove stands, ornaments, lights and tinsel; place holiday trees at the curb; trees over six feet in length must be cut in half; trees with flocking or fire retardants are acceptable; and please do not leave the tree in a plastic bag as the bag gets caught in the chipper blades.
