City of Cleveland Will Pick Up Discarded Live Christmas Trees

City of Cleveland residents can dispose of live Christmas trees and wreathes by placing them on tree lawns on regularly scheduled waste collection days.  The Cleveland Department of Public Works will collect discarded trees and wreathes from Monday, December 30, 2013 through Friday, January 31, 2014.


Only live trees and wreathes free of lights, tinsel, wires, bows and all other ornaments will be collected from tree lawns.  Residents can dispose of artificial wreathes and trees by breaking them down and placing in garbage cans for collection on regular trash collection days.

The City of Cleveland then partners with a contractor who turns the tress into mulch. In the spring, the City provides one yard of mulch to Cleveland residents free while supplies last.

For further information regarding waste collection, please call the City of Cleveland’s Division of Waste Collection at (216) 664-3711.
