Christmas Trees

Recology CleanScapes will collect natural, undecorated, unflocked Christmas trees in lengths up to 4 feet. Customers who already subscribe to compost collection can put their trees out for pickup on their regular compost collection day.

Households customers in our Issaquah service area who do not already subscribe to compost services can still have a properly prepared tree collected as compost during the first two full weeks of the new year for no charge. Contact customer service at 425.837.1234 or at to schedule a tree collection.

Flocked trees are not accepted in compost collection. The flocking can often contain non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardant, or additives to make the flocking glitter and shine. Flocked trees are considered garbage, and are not accepted at tree recycling facilities.
