Holiday Tree Recycling
Holiday Tree Recycling programs are offered annually to all residents in the unincorporated area and the ten cities in the County that pay for trash and recycling services. This service is provided to single family residences, multi-family residents, and residents in areas not provided with curbside green materials collection programs. Every hauling company has its own program, so always check with your city’s recycling coordinator or call your hauler if you have any questions. Although holiday tree recycling is usually free, there may be a small fee charged to pick up trees placed at the curb or trees collected after a company’s holiday tree recycling program is over. Multi-family units such as condominiums or apartments are usually provided with holiday tree recycling at no extra cost. Residents are encouraged to call their complex manager or Home Owners Association for details.
Residents in the unincorporated area of the County with curbside green materials recycling programs should cut un-flocked trees into pieces and place them in their green materials bin. Tree stands, nails, metal rods in the trunks, and all ornaments must be removed. Trees will be collected on regular recycling days for several weeks after Christmas. Call your hauler to ensure you meet the deadline for free collection. Fees are usually charged to pick up trees “recycled” after the holiday collection program has ended. Multi-family units such as condominiums or apartments are usually provided with holiday tree recycling at no extra cost. Residents with questions should call their complex manager or HOA for details.
Residents of the unincorporated area of the County that DO NOT have curbside green materials collection should call their hauler for holiday tree recycling information or tree drop-off locations in their area. Each company handles holiday tree recycling differently – so be sure to call them if information has not been provided on your most recent billing statement.
