Christmas Trees

Christmas Tree Disposal

  • Christmas trees are “recycled” into mulch for use in the Parks and Recreation’s beautification program.
  • If you would like to discard your Christmas tree, a special curbside collection period will take place beginning December 29, and continuing through January 29.
  • Please place the tree curbside for the Street Division to collect on your neighborhood's designated day of the week for pickup; much like the leaf collection schedule works.
  • Call Public Works and Water Resources Department with any questions at (302) 366-7000.
