Christmas Tree Pick Up Options

As the end of the holiday season nears, those that have opted for a natural tree must face the dilemma of how to dispose of it. The options will differ based on your location, but these are some ideas and recommendations from Pro Waste Inc. on what you can do with your tree after the holidays: 

Dumpster Rental 

If you have more than just a Christmas tree to get rid of, consider renting a dumpster. At Pro Waste Inc. we offer a variety of dumpster rental options to fit any job. Our 15 yard dumpsters are perfect for landscape and light yard waste, such as Christmas trees. We offer same day delivery and removal in most areas. You can request a quote here today! 

Curb-Side Pick Up

Most areas offer curb-side Christmas tree pick up for the first two weeks of January. There are often requirements on size, ornament removal, flocking, etc. so make sure you do your research before setting it out. Artificial trees are generally not accepted for this option because the trees are taken to be recycled and turned into mulch.

Local Non-Profit Organizations 

Sometimes local organizations offer Christmas tree pickup for small donations. For example, in some communities boy scout troops will pick up trees for just $5. This may require calling around and doing some research on the groups in your area. 

Return to Seller 

Some larger tree farms will accept their trees back after the holidays. Try contacting the place you purchased your tree to inquire about possible pick up or drop-off options.
