The City will be collecting Christmas trees for recycling this year thru January 12. Please place your tree free of any foreign material or objects (bulbs, stands, etc) curbside on your regular trash collection day. “Flocked” trees or trees containing any foreign objects will not be accepted for recycling and will be taken as trash for disposal.
All trees placed curbside after January 12 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 due to the volume of trees and staff availability, it may not be picked up on the same day.
Please visit www.westutx.gov/specialevents and click on the “Christmas Tree Recycling” tab for more information.
