Easy Disposal of Christmas Trees

Beginning this week Raleigh residents should place their discarded trees at the curb with regular yard waste on their scheduled collection day. Be sure to remove all bags, stands, lights, tinsel, ornaments, and other non-vegetative items from the tree before placing it at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on the collection day. Residents should not put trees at the curbside prior to their collection day. Artificial trees being discarded should be disassembled and placed in garbage carts.

All natural Christmas trees collected by the City’s Solid Waste Services Department, including those taken to the Yard Waste Center, are recycled into wood chips and mulch. These products are sold to the general public at the City’s Yard Waste Center, located at 900 N. New Hope Road, which can be reached at 250-2728.

    Does anyone know the Christmas tree disposal rules or dates if you live downtown? We do not have a regularly scheduled yard waste pickup day.
