  • Wood Disposal to learn how to get rid of lumber, tree branches, shrubs, and firewood

The Department of Sanitation (DSNY) conducts a special Christmas Tree Collection every January. During the collection period, live trees are collected, chipped, mixed with leaves, and recycled into rich compost for NYC's parks, institutions, and community gardens.

This year's Christmas Tree Collection has ended, but you can put your live or artificial tree out with your trash. No appointments are necessary.
