How to recycle your tree

You can have your Christmas tree taken as yard waste. Collections will occur during the weeks of January 4 – 8 and 11 – 15. A fee of $10.66 per tree will appear on your following month’s utility bill.

Remove all decorations, wires and stands to prepare your tree for pickup. Set the tree out before 7 a.m. on your collection day but no earlier than the day before pickup. Keep ice and snow off the tree. No plastic, compostable or other bags should be included.

If you would like collection outside these two weeks, call Utility Billing at 952-563-8726 and schedule a bulky item pickup for a fee. For information, visit blm.mn/garbage
