Residential Christmas Tree Collection: Curbside Reminders

 

 

1. During your area's scheduled Christmas Tree Collection Week, place your undecorated tree curbside before 7:00am on your regular collection day.

 

2. Remove the tree stand and ALL tree decorations, lights, nails, wire and plastic from the Christmas tree before placing the tree curbside.

 

3. Trees must remain uncovered and be visible for curbside collection.  Remove any plastic used to remove the tree from your home.  Do not cover the tree with a blanket or tarp.  Make sure the tree has not become buried in the snow or frozen to the ground.

 

4. Place your undecorated Christmas tree at the end of your driveway in a location that is visible.  Make sure the tree is accessible and can be safely removed by the collector.  A Christmas tree placed on top of a snow bank, located in a ditch, buried in snow or frozen to the ground will not be removed by collector.

 

5. Artificial Christmas trees are not collected curbside.  Artificial Christmas trees can be taken to the Waste Waste Management Facility on Spar Road in Sydney from 8:00am to 4:00pm Tuesday to Saturday.

 

6. Christmas trees are also accepted for drop off at the Waste Management Facility.
