During the Month of January Recology will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural trees in lengths up to 4 feet.
Customers who subscribe to food/yard waste collection service may place trees out for collection on their regularly scheduled food/yard waste collection day.
Residential customers who do not subscribe to food/yard waste service may schedule collection of properly prepared trees during the month of January at no additional charge. Contact customer service at 206.762.4900 or at DesMoines@recology.com by Friday, January 21st to schedule a tree collection.
Flocked trees are not accepted in compost collection because flocking contains non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardants, or additives. Flocked trees may be disposed of as garbage for an additional fee.
