Christmas Trees

Recology CleanScapes will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural trees in lengths up to 4 feet. Customers that already subscribe to food & yard waste collection can put the tree out on your every-other-week collection day.

We will also collect properly prepared trees for composting from all households in our SeaTac service area during the first two weeks of the new year for no charge. Contact customer service at 206.767.1166 or at to schedule a tree collection.

Flocked trees are not accepted in food & yard waste 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.

Unflocked, undecorated, natural trees can also be dropped off for recycling at the following locations for a fee:
