Christmas Tree Disposal and Mulchfest

On January 6 and 7, from 10 AM to 2 PM, the Department of Parks and Recreation will accept and chip Christmas trees at their annual MulchFest held at selected park locations throughout the City.

In addition, the Department of Sanitation will have special Christmas tree collections from Tuesday, January 2, through Saturday, January 13. Trees that are not collected after this period may be left curbside and will not receive a violation. Remaining trees will be collected as regular household waste.

Before dropping off your tree at a Mulchfest event or leaving it out curbside for Sanitation collection, you must remove:

·     Plastic bags

·     Lights

·     Ornaments

·     Tree stands

·     Tree-related accessories

Trees that still have items attached cannot be composted and will be collected as regular trash.
