Tree-cycling with DSNY

It’s Christmas “Tree-cycling” Time!
The New York City Department of Sanitation will begin its annual curbside collection of Christmas trees starting Monday, January 6, 2019. Collection runs through Friday, January 17, weather permitting. Residents should remove all stands, tinsel, lights and ornaments before putting trees out for collection. After collection, clean, non-bagged Christmas trees will be chipped, mixed with leaves, and recycled into compost for the city’s parks, institutions and community gardens.
Those needing to get rid of mostly plastic and metal artificial Christmas trees should consider selling or donating them. Donation opportunities may be found at
