You can put your live Christmas tree curbside for chipping and composting at any time during the Department of Sanitation’s special collection period.
The 2020 Christmas Tree Collection will run Monday, January 6 through Friday, January 17.
Before placing your tree curbside, remove:
- Plastic bags
- Tree stands
- Other tree-related accessories
Trees that still have items attached can’t be composted and will be collected as regular trash.

After the special collection period is over, Christmas trees will be collected with regular garbage.
