Recycle Your Christmas Tree!

The City of Newton will collect Christmas trees for recycling the first two weeks of January, on your collection day only*.
2016 dates: January 4th through January 15th, 2016

For 2016, Christmas trees will be collected for recycling on your collection day from January 4th through January 15th.  Please place your undecorated Christmas tree out to the curb by 7am on your collection day during this time. All decorations and lights must be removed and trees cannot be in a bag.

*After this time, the City will not collect Christmas trees. Residents will be responsible for disposing their own trees, they will NOT be accepted as bulk waste. Or wait until April and prepare the tree according to yard waste guidelines.
