City Offers Christmas Tree Disposal Options

Release Date: 12/21/2009 12:00:00 AM

Contact: Ann Deasy, 625-6318

The holidays aren’t quite here yet, but it won’t be long until that fine-smelling fir in the living room is a dried-up fire hazard. So, the City wants to remind you of your options to get rid of your tree once the season is over.

Once the decorations are removed, residents can discard their fresh-cut trees at:

  • Clean Green yard debris carts for curbside pick-up. All trees should be cut up so they fit in the yard debris cart.
  • Garbage cart (or next to the garbage, extra fees may apply). Trees must be cut into 6' lengths.
  • Taken to the Waste to Energy Facility or at either of the transfer stations as Clean Green waste (reduced fees apply):
    • 2900 S. Geiger Blvd.
    • 3941 N. Sullivan Rd.
    • 22123 Elk-Chattaroy Rd.

The City will accept trees up to 6 feet in height; if they’re taller than that, cut them in half. Call the Recycling Hotline at 625-6800 or Solid Waste at 625-7878 for more information.

Remember garbage pickup and curbside recycling will be one day late following the holidays. Friday pickup will occur on Saturday, Dec. 26, and Jan. 2.
