Live Christmas trees are collected at the curb with residents’ usual yard trimming pickup. Be sure to remove tinsel, lights, decoration, plastic bags and tree stands before putting them out.
Artificial trees are accepted for bulk waste collection, which must be scheduled. Place the tree on the curb by 7 p.m. the night before collection day.
Statewide, there are Christmas tree drop-off locations for you to recycle your fir, pine, cedar or cypress.
According to PickYourOwnChristmasTree.org, most Home Depot stores across Georgia take trees for recycling. The trees are chipped and transformed into compost and mulch.
Check with your local Home Depot to verify their hours for 2021 and 2022.
Big John’s Trees doesn’t just offer tree delivery and lighting services, the company also provides removal and “tree-cycling.”
Prices vary by the height of your tree. The cut-off date for removal and recycling is Monday, Jan. 10th, 2022. Call or email Big John’s Christmas Trees for details.
