Trash and recycling bins on the curb

Live Christmas Tree Recycling

Posted December 22, 2021 in Community Alert by Anna Subler

As you’re taking down your Christmas decorations, remember that live trees can be disposed of with regular curbside trash pickup in Hilliard. Just place your tree at the curb, free of any wrapping paper, lights, ornamentation, and bags, and Local Waste will collect it.

Tree collection will take place:

  • Tuesday, December 28
  • Tuesday, January 4
  • Tuesday, January 11

Christmas trees can also be recycled in your backyard in a variety of ways. Evergreen branches can be used to cover perennial gardens. These branches could be the difference between losing a plant this winter and seeing it bloom again next year. You may also cut up the smaller tree branches into one- to two-inch pieces to use as mulch.
