2020 Christmas Tree Collection Program Dates and Information

Gilton Solid Waste Management will be doing curbside collection of Christmas trees after the holiday. They will be collected during the first two FULL weeks in January starting on January 4th and ending on January 15th. 

Please remember the following if participating in the Christmas Tree Collection Program:

  • Trees need to be in front of the house (even if customers have alley service)
  • Trees will be collected on customer’s GARBAGE collection day
  • Trees need to have all metal stands, lights and ornaments removed (wood stands are OK)
  • Trees should be placed on the street surface next to the curb, but a minimum of 6 feet away from cars or refuse cans
  • Prefer treated trees to be cut up and put in the garbage can, but it is not absolutely required
