Holiday trees can be recycled as yard debris at single-family homes.
Place greenery and trees into your cart if it will fit (either whole or cut up).
Whole trees can be placed on the curb as an additional yard debris set-out, for a charge.
If shorter than six feet, your tree can be set out whole.
If taller than six feet, it should be cut into pieces less than six feet long.
No matter the length, the tree should be set-out with your yard debris cart, so your hauler can lift it into the truck.
In the case of inclement weather, your tree pick-up will count as one yard debris set-out and will be picked-up either the next day or the next scheduled service day.
In multi-family communities, such as apartments or condominiums with centralized hauling services, residents should first contact their property manager or board of directors to determine if a holiday tree pick-up service or event has been arranged.
Otherwise, visit Metro’s Find-A-Recycler website to determine the closest yard debris recycling facility or seasonal tree recycling event.
Your tree should not include:
Nails or spikes
Wreaths and swags can also be placed in your yard debris cart (metal wire and non-plant products removed).
Flocking (artificial snow treatment) on trees is acceptable
