Tree Recycling

To have your tree picked up curbside for free, please see the guidelines below.


  • Remove all decorations including flocking, ornaments, tinsel, lights, etc.
  • If the tree is 6 feet or longer, cut sections of 4 feet or less (bundle sections together).
  • Set the tree 3 feet from your trash cart(s) on your regularly scheduled day.
  • NO artificial trees.

Please note that trees are collected by a separate truck, which may come at a different time than your regular trash pickup.
