Holiday Tree Collection
One live holiday tree is included in the Citywide Collection program between January 2nd and 15th each year. You do not need to call your hauler to schedule collection during this time period. Place your tree next to your garbage cart on your regular collection day.
Artificial trees and live trees exceeding 6' and 20 pounds are not included, but may qualify for a bulky item pick-up or be collected for an additional fee if all bulky items have been used for the year. Contact your hauler for more information and to schedule pick-up.
