For West U Residents

The city will be collecting Christmas trees for recycling between December 26, 2019, and January 10, 2020.

Please place your tree, free of any foreign materials or objects (bulbs, lights, stands, etc.), curbside on your regular trash day. These trees will be taken to a local composter and recycled as mulch.

Trees that are flocked or have ornaments, lights, stands, or any other foreign objects WILL NOT be accepted for recycling. These trees will be collected with your normal household trash and disposed of in the landfill.

Please be aware that we will do our best to collect your Christmas trees on the day they are placed curbside but  due to the volume of trees, it may not be picked up the same day.
