Christmas trees and wreaths
We urge our customers to participate in one of the many local, nonprofit organizations
that offer pickup services or locations where you can take Christmas trees
and wreaths to be
or request a donation. Nonprofit
organizations provide this service as a fundraiser for many worthwhile projects
and as a community service. Dumping trees after sites are closed creates hardship
for the groups having to handle them. Please be considerate. All nonprofit
groups accept trees at least one day on the weekend. See
the listings at the bottom of this page for just a few of the low cost tree
recycling sponsors in our local community for the 2016 - 2017 Christmas season.
Residents with curbside yard debris collection service can recycle
their trees in their yard debris carts at no additional charge. Please
follow the guidelines on tree preparation as stated below to assure

It is important to remove all lights, wire, tinsel, ornaments,
nails, stands and other materials that are not part of the original tree. Most
