December 26, 2017 to January 20, 2018 - Holiday Tree Collection

2017 Christmas Tree Pickup

Beginning the day after Christmas, Resource Recovery and Recycling will collect Christmas trees during your neighborhood's designated collection day. If your tree is over 6 feet tall, it is recommended that your tree is cut in half. Please make sure to remove any decorations and the tree stand, and Resource Recovery and Recycling will ensure the tree is composted, not sent to the landfill.
