Christmas Tree Collection to Start Monday, January 4

Our friends at Community Board 2 let us know that Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia has announced that curbside pickup of Christmas trees will begin this coming Monday, January 4.

City residents should remove all tree stands, tinsel, lights and ornaments from trees before they are put out for collection. Clean, non-bagged Christmas trees left on the curb between Monday, January 4 and Friday, January 15, 2016 will be chipped, mixed with leaves, and recycled into rich compost for the city’s parks, institutions, and community gardens.
