Free holiday tree collection is provided for single-family households with automated collection beginning Monday, December 28, 2020, through Friday, January 8, 2021. Holiday trees are picked up in a special collection truck. Residents are reminded to remove all decorations and have their holiday trees out by your curb by 7:00 a.m. If your tree is more than 6 feet tall, please cut it in half for safe and easy collection.
If you don’t take your tree down until after January 10, 2020, please cut it into pieces that will fit in your yard-waste container with the lid closed. You can also recycle holiday wreaths and greenery in your yard waste cart. The wreaths and greenery must also be bare, so please remove all wire, hooks, bows, and other decorations. Collected trees and greenery are turned into mulch, compost, and ground cover. Artificial trees and wreaths are not recyclable. If you are discarding an artificial tree or wreath, please place the pieces into the trash cart. For additional information, please call Republic Services at (714) 238- 2444 or visit https://www.republicservices.com/municipality/placentia-ca.
