Recology will collect unflocked, undecorated, natural trees in lengths up to 4 feet.

Flocked trees are not accepted with food/yard waste collection because flocking contains non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardants, or additives.  Flocked trees may be disposed as garbage for an additional fee. 

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 first two full weeks in January at no additional charge.  Contact customer service at 206.767.1166 or at [email protected] by Friday, December 30th to schedule tree collection.
