The City of Dublin makes it easy for you to get rid of those real trees with our curbside pickup and residential yard waste composting program.
Collection will take place each Monday in January. Please remove all decorations and place Christmas trees at the curb, free of any wrapping or bags, by 7 a.m. on Mondays. Trees should be cut to lengths of no more than 4 feet.
Christmas trees can also be composted at home or used in the back yard in a variety of ways. The branches can be cut and used to cover perennial gardens, acting as extra protection from the cold weather. Trees can also provide wild birds and animals temporary perches or resting sites with extra protection from cold weather.
The City of Dublin is committed to providing its residents with comprehensive recycling and yard waste diversion programs to reduce and recycle our waste stream and increase environmental protection and awareness.
For details of the Christmas tree recycling program or the City’s recycling, yard waste diversion and composting programs, call 614.410.4750.
