Only real trees can be accepted. All decorations, stands, and pots must be removed. After these dates, the main recycling facility will accept trees for our normal yard debris charge of $20 per ton, with a $2 minimum.

Artificial trees can be placed in the scrap metal recycling bin, but all decorations and lights must be removed. Pre-lit trees cannot be recycled, so throw those in with the regular trash.
