Live Christmas trees may have added warmth and vitality to your home during the holiday season, but now they’re kicked to the curb…and that’s where the city’s Solid Waste Services comes in.

Live Christmas trees are biodegradable, which means they can be easily reused or recycled for mulch. These trees can be disposed of as part of the normal weekly yard waste pickup following the holidays, or residents can take the trees to any of the city’s four drop-off stations between 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. (Stations will be closed on New Year’s Day.)

  • 2400 Brennan Ave.
  • 5150 Martin Luther King Freeway.
  • 6260 Old Hemphill Road.
  • 301 Hillshire Drive.

Note: Drop-off stations will be closed on New Year’s Day.

Trees must be less than eight feet long, and should be cut into two pieces if necessary. Be sure to take all your decorations, lights and tree stands off of the tree before you place it on the curb.

Do not put the tree in a plastic bag.

Flocked trees are accepted, but artificial trees are not accepted for yard waste collection.
