Holiday Tree Recycling

Holiday trees from single-family residents, multi-family residents, and schools may be set out on your regular collection day during a two-week period in January, beginning the first Monday of each year.

Dates for the next Holiday tree Recycling are:
  • January 4-8, 2021 and January 11-15, 2021
Remove ornaments, tinsel, nails, and stands.  Flocked trees will be collected, but not composted.  If necessary, cut tree into a maximum of 6-foot lengths.  Place curbside for pick up on your regular collection day.  At the end of the two-week period during the month of January, unflocked holiday trees may be cut up and placed inside the organics cart for collection.
  • Single-family residents may set out holiday trees curbside.
  • Multi-family residents may set out holiday trees in the general collection area or enclosure.
  • Schools may set out trees as agreed to by the school and Alameda County Industries.
