Holiday Tree Disposal and Recycling Options

Residents have several options to properly dispose of holiday trees. Please read the summary below.

a) On any of your regular green waste collection days, cut your unflocked, natural tree to fit in your yard waste cart. Trees must be 6 feet or less in diameter and cut to 3 feet in length. Cut off the top and remove the stand and all decorations. Artificial trees should be put into the trash bin.

(b) If you’ve not already used your two annual allocated On-Call Curbside Clean-up(s), call Republic Services to arrange for no cost curbside pick-up at (510) 262-7100. Unscheduled pickups are subject to a service fee by RSS.

(c) With proof of residency (driver’s license or CA ID), Republic Servicescustomers can take Christmas Trees to Golden Bear Transfer (1 Parr Blvd, Richmond; Monday - Friday, 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM; Saturday - Sunday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) through the first weekend in February at no cost for compostable trees; there will be a disposal fee for a non-compostable tree or no proof of residency.
