SW-REQUEST: Christmas Tree Pickup Request

Is there a cost for Christmas tree pickup?

The City will offer free Christmas tree disposal for residents within city limits. The free disposal will run from Wednesday, January 2 through Thursday, January 31, with pickup taking place on the same day as trash pickup. Free Christmas tree pickup only includes the removal of one tree per household. Additional Christmas trees can be removed and billed at a rate of $10 per tree. After January 31, any Christmas tree pickups scheduled will be used as the residents’ free monthly yard waste extra pickup

Are there any guidelines for Christmas tree pickup?

Residents are asked to follow the guidelines for safe and efficient tree pickup:

  • Trees must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on the day of pickup. Trees should not be placed in the street or alley, and must be out front, in an open area, unobstructed by cars, trees, powerlines, mailboxes, fences, poles, buildings or containers. Cars should not be parked on top or in front of the tree, as this could hamper crews from collecting it.
     
  • All lights, ornaments, plastic coverings/wraps and metals, such as nails or tree stands, must be removed from the tree prior to pick up. Items left on trees can injure employees or seriously damage the tree shredding equipment, leaving it inoperable.
     
  • Artificial trees and trees containing any metal, glass or wire will not be collected. Residents will be responsible for the proper disposal of these items.

Who is eligible to request a Christmas tree pickup?

Any resident living within city limits. All guidelines must be met in order for the tree to be removed. 

When will my Christmas tree pickup be scheduled?

The pickup is provided on the next scheduled trash pickup date.
