The garbage collection service will pick up Christmas trees for recycling during the first two weeks of January. Residents can recycle their cut up tree in their green cart at any time.
After the two-week period, trees set out at the curb, but not in the green cart, can be picked up for a fee, but the trees will not be recycled.
- remove tinsel, ornaments, nails, and tree stands
- cut trees that are more than 5-feet in length into 5-foot pieces
- set the tree at the curb next to their refuse and yard trimmings carts
