The Streets Division will collect Christmas trees for recycling. Each neighborhood will receive two collections. You may also bring your trees to our drop off sites. Note: Collection could be delayed due to winter weather. Snow and ice operations have priority over tree collection.

 

Round One begins Monday January 5th

Round Two begins Tuesday January 20th.

Have your tree out on the above dates to insure collection. It takes us 8 to 10 working days to complete a round of collection.

Christmas Tree Collection Rules

All trees are chipped at the curb. To avoid damage to our equipment, we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • Place trees at the street edge only
  • Remove and discard tree bags
  • Remove all tree stands, ornaments, lights and other metal objects
  • Trees that are not properly prepared will NOT be collected.
