Christmas tree disposal

During the first two full weeks in January, natural Christmas trees will be collected as yard waste. Collections of natural green trees will occur during the weeks of January 6 and 13. A fee of approximately $10 per tree will appear on your following month’s utility bill. To ensure your tree is ready for pick up: 

  • Remove tinsel, decorations, wires and stands. 
  • Set out before 7 a.m. on your collection day. You do not need to make special pick up arrangements during these weeks.
  • Set out the tree no earlier than the day before pickup. Ensure it does not stick to snow or ice.
  • Don’t include plastic, compostable or other bags.

For collection outside these weeks, call Utility Billing at 952-563-8726 to schedule a bulky item pickup. A fee of $51 will be applied.
