Residential Curbside Christmas Tree Pickup is available for residential customers on cart/barrel service only. No commercial customers or businesses or bin customers. Remove all decorations, stands, wires, nails, etc. Natural trees will be mulched. Flocked or artificial trees will also be accepted, but they will be collected as trash.
