Recycle your tree
If you would like your natural Christmas tree to be taken as yard waste, collections will occur during the weeks of January 5 - 11 and 12 - 18. A fee of approximately $10 per tree will appear on your following month’s utility bill.
To prepare your tree for pick up, remove all decorations, wires and stands. Set out before 7 a.m. on your collection day but no earlier than the day before pickup. Keep snow or ice off the tree. No plastic, compostable or other bags should be included.
For collection outside these two weeks, call Utility Billing at 952-563-8726 and schedule a bulky item pickup for a fee. Visit blm.mn/garbage for information.
