Christmas Tree Recycling

With holiday festivities winding down, Watertown residents have multiple options to dispose of their real Christmas trees. The Watertown-Mayer Ecology Club will be doing free curbside pick-up of trees on Saturday, January 6th. Residents should have their tree at the curb the night before and have all ornaments, tinsel, lights, etc. removed from the tree. If trees are larger than 8’ please cut into sections and ensure the tree is not buried in snow or ice.

Real trees can also be disposed of for free at the City’s compost site during daylight hours seven days per week at 700 Lewis Ave N. Trees must be free of ornaments, tinsel, lights, etc. when they are dropped off.

For those who miss the curbside collection date or wish to have their tree picked up, the City’s municipal waste hauler, Randy’s Sanitation will do curbside pick-up of real trees as part of regular trash collection on Friday, January 6th and Friday, January 12th. Customers will be charged $8 per tree plus an environmental fee for this service. Residents should have their tree at the curb the night before and have all ornaments, tinsel, lights, etc. removed from the tree. If trees are larger than 8’ please cut into sections and ensure the tree is not buried in snow or ice.
