Treecycle 2015: January 5-16

Recycling Your Holiday Tree
Is As Easy As 1,2,3!

January 5-16

 1    Remove all decorations and the tree stand. NO artificial or flocked trees. Real evergreen trees only! 

 2    Set your tree out for collection during the first two weeks of January. Your tree will get picked up by a special tree collection truck for recycling.

 3     Reclaim free mulch made from your tree at the annual Mulch Giveaway in the spring!

Set-out day and location depends on your trash service type. 
  • Manual & Cart customers:  Set trees out near your normal trash set-out location by 7 a.m. on one of your trash collection days during the week of January 5th or the week of January 12th.
  • Dumpster customers: Set trees out in the alley by 7 a.m. on either Monday, January 5th OR Monday, January 12th for collection sometime during that week.

Please do not place trees in dumpsters. Trees should be placed at least 2 feet away from dumpsters and other obstacles for collection.


Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 2nd and come get free mulch made from your tree and our annual Mulch Giveaway & Compost Sale.
