Recycle Your Christmas Tree!

The City of Newton collected Christmas trees for recycling the first two weeks of January, on your collection day only*.
2017 dates: January 2nd through January 13th, 2016


For 2016, Christmas trees were 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 of their own trees. They will NOT be accepted as bulk waste. Or, residents can wait until April and prepare the tree according to yard waste guidelines.
