2022 Christmas Tree Pick-up: Dates TBD

After the Christmas holiday, Advance Disposal will pick up your Christmas tree curbside on the day of your regular trash collection at no additional cost. Please have your tree out by 6:00 am. Check back for the 2022 pick-up dates.

Christmas Tree RecyclingTree Recycling Requirements

  • Remove all stands, lights, ornaments and tinsel
  • Christmas trees over 6 feet - please cut in half
  • No flocked trees, artificial trees or plastic bags will be accepted

Note: Trees will be ground up and used for mulch. Plastic bags, tinsel, etc., are contaminants in mulch and make the finished product unusable.

Residents may also take their Christmas trees directly to Advance Disposal during the scheduled pick-up dates, and place the tree in the roll off bin marked Christmas Trees Only. All tree recycling requirements must be followed.

If you have a Christmas tree that needs to be picked up after the pick-up dates have ended, please call Advance Disposal (760-244-9773) to schedule a green waste pick up. Four green waste pick ups per year are included with residential service.
