Holiday Tree Recycling
Beginning December 26 and ending January 14, Waste Management will collect holiday trees free of charge. Trees must be cut into 3-foot segments, stripped of all ornaments, garlands, tinsel, flocking, stands, and placed on the curb near your carts, on your regularly scheduled green waste collection day. Trees not meeting these guidelines, (such as flocked trees) can be picked up as bulky items.
