[ARCHIVED] Christmas Tree Recycling


The City will be collecting Christmas trees for recycling beginning December 26 thru January 13.  Please place your tree, free of any foreign material or objects (bulbs, stands, etc) curbside on your regular trash day.  “Flocked” trees or trees containing any foreign objects will not be accepted for recycling and will be taken to the landfill for disposal.  

All trees placed curbside after January 13 will need to comply with the standard green waste collection rules; cut to 4-foot lengths or less, no greater than 3 inches in diameter and stacked curbside.  These piles will need to be small enough so it does not delay the crews from collecting the normal routes.  If the piles are large and require special pickup, a special collection fee will be assessed (minimum fee is $50).

Please be aware that we will do our best to collect your Christmas tree on the day they are placed curbside but occasionally due to the volume of trees, it may not be picked up the same day.

Please visit  and click on the “Christmas Tree Recycling” tab for more information.

If you have any questions regarding Christmas tree recycling, you may call us at 713-662-5839 or email us at
