Dispose of Christmas Trees during Heavy Item & Brush Collection Pick-up

December 20, 2019 – When it’s time to wrap up the holiday season, Midland residents can dispose of their Christmas trees by placing it at the curb on their monthly heavy item collection day.

City crews will collect Christmas trees during residents’ once-a-month heavy item and brush collection week. Trees will not be collected with regular refuse collection. The tree should be free of ornaments, garland, and tinsel. Residents should also remove plastic tree bags used to cover the tree as it is removed from the house. 

Real Christmas trees are recycled into wood chips at a City compost site.

Residents who wish to keep their trees can prop it up in the backyard to use as shelter for birds and animals during the winter months.

Residents can find all of the City’s regular and holiday collection schedules, as well as set email and mobile alert reminders, by using the free Recycle Coach™ app available on mobile from the App Store and Google Play or online at www.recyclecoach.com/residents.

For more information or questions, contact the Department of Public Services at 989-837-6900 or visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/publicservices.
